Police are urging all motorcyclists and car drivers to be extra vigilant on the roads this weekend following the sixth fatal collision involving a motorbike since the current hot spell began.
Yesterday evening, two motorcyclists died in separate collisions in the county, bringing the total to six. At around 3pm, a 24-year-old man died when his Honda motorbike was in collision with a Skoda Fabia at Fair Oak; and just after 4.20pm, another 24-year-old rider was killed when his Honda motorbike was in collision with a Ford flat-bed truck at Lopcombe Corner at the junction Hollom Down Road near Stockbridge.
The other fatal collisions involving motorcycles over the past week took place at Rownhams, Oakhanger, New Forest, and on the A31 at Alton. There have also been two other fatal road traffic collisions during this period.
