A TEENAGE motorcyclist from Elmdon died after his bike was in collision with a car on the A1301 in Sawston last Wednesday.

Thomas Mills, 19, of Elm Court, suffered multiple injuries and died later that day at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge.

A silver Renault Clio, being driven by a 19-year-old woman from Saffron Walden, was also involved in the crash. She suffered no injuries but was treated for shock at the scene.

The accident happened at 8.20am close to the London Road junction.

An East Anglian Ambulance spokesman said: "We received a mobile phone call and two ambulances and a Magpas medic attended the scene.

"The motorcyclist was taken to Addenbrooke's and although attempts were made to resuscitate him on the way, the man died from his injuries in hospital."

PC John Blood, of Cambridgeshire Police, wants to hear from anyone who witnessed the collision.

He said: "I am appealing to anyone who was in the area last Wednesday morning with any information to contact me.

"We are trying to discover what happened in the moments leading up to the incident and any information could be important."

Contact PC Blood at the Cambridgeshire Road Policing Unit on 08454 564564. Mr Mills' family were too upset to speak to the Reporter at the time of going to print.
