A man was taken to hospital after being involved in a motorcycle crash in Abbey Drive, Ashby, on Wednesday.

A spokeswoman for Leicestershire Police said on Thursday he was in a ‘stable’ condition in Nottingham’s Queen’s Medical Centre.

The incident happened on Wednesday evening at the Westfield Estate and police cordoned Abbey Drive off so that the rider could be treated by emergency services.

A Leicestershire Police statement said: “We were called at 6.20pm yesterday (Wednesday) to a report of a road traffic collision involving one vehicle, a motorcycle, in Abbey Drive, Ashby.

“Officers attended the scene.

“The motorcyclist was taken to Nottingham’s Queen’s Medical Centre for treatment.

“He remains in hospital in a stable condition.

“The road was temporarily closed between the junctions of Abbey Close and Abbey Drive to allow emergency services to deal with the incident.”

This is the second accident to happen in the same area in just over a fortnight.
