Witnesses are being sought after a motorbike rider was seriously injured following a short police pursuit in the Kimberworth area on Saturday night (18 August).


Just before 11.25pm, a marked police car was travelling along Upper Wortley Road towards Rotherham when a black Honda Motorbike pulled out of the Texaco Petrol Station and began travelling in front of the car.

The bike has then turned left on to Oaks Road before a short pursuit occurred after the rider failed to stop for police.

As the bike travelled along Town Lane and approached the junction with Wingfield Road, he appears to have lost control and come off the bike. The 26-year-old man riding the bike was taken to hospital to be treated for serious injuries. His condition is currently described as serious but stable.

A mandatory referral has been made to the Independent Office for Police Conduct.

Officers want to hear from anyone who saw what happened or who saw the bike prior to the collision. If you can help, please call 101 quoting incident 1069 of 18 August 2018.
