Detectives investigating a collision in Ridgmont which led to the death of a motorcyclist have released an image of a van which may have key information about the incident.
Callum Wilkinson, 29, from Daventry, was pronounced dead at the scene after his motorcycle collided with a Mercedes Sprinter on Cobbler’s Lane shortly after 8am on Friday, 17 June.
Investigators are continuing to follow several lines of enquiry and have released an image of a Thrifty flatbed van which was travelling on Cobbler’s Lane around the time of the incident.
The van, which is pictured carrying an unusual load, was not involved in the collision and the driver is sought only as a potential key witness.
Detective Sergeant Ben Heath, from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “Our enquiries into the cause of this collision are ongoing and we’re hopeful that the driver of the van and any other occupants my have key information to help establish the cause of the crash. I would like to reassure them that they are not in any trouble.
“The van was travelling down Cobbler’s Lane at around 8.20am towards Ridgmont and went into the village, where it turned left towards Woburn Safari Park. We are hoping people will recognise the van due to the load it was carrying.
“If you are the driver of the van or know someone who carried a similar load to that shown in the image, please get in touch right away.”
Anyone with information on the collision or dashcam footage is urged to call 101 or report online, quoting Operation Almer.
