Inquest opened in to York biker's death

2:37pm 2nd September 2010

The inquest into the death of a York man, killed in a crash on the A1237 last month, has opened and adjourned.

26 year old Thomas Lee Hodgson lived in Clifton.

He was riding a red Kawasaki ZX900 motorbike on Monday August 30th 2010 when he collided with a blue Audi A3.

Officers would like to speak with anyone who saw the motorbike prior to the collision, between 7pm and 9.15pm on Monday 30 August.

Police are also trying to trace the movements of the sports bike, which had the registration number T42 KNW, between the time of the collision and Tuesday 24 August, when it was stolen from an address in Rawcliffe in the city.

Traffic Sergeant Dave Willey, who is leading the investigation into the collision, said:

"Just prior to the collision there were at least two other cars and a motorcycle on the A1237. Following the collision, a silver Vauxhall Corsa containing a number of young women stopped at the scene. However, they left the area before officers had a chance to take their details.

"We need to speak with the occupants of the cars and motorcyclist. I would ask them to contact North Yorkshire Police as soon as possible."

Anyone who witnessed the collision or has any information that could help progress the enquiry, in particular any of the people in vehicles in the area, is asked to contact Traffic Constable Chris Scott on 0845 60 60 24 7 quoting reference number 12100149305.
