Police hunting biker after lorry driver seriously injured in brutal road rage attack

Police are hunting a biker after a lorry driver was seriously injured in a brutal road rage attack. Emergency services descended on the  A49 at Whitchurch on the Cheshire/Shropshire border following an altercation near to Bradley Green Lane at around 4.20pm yesterday (August 14). A 60-year-old trucker was then airlifted to hospital and his condition remains serious.

Now detectives have asked for the public’s help to tracks down a motorcyclist who fled the scene following an assault after taking a number of witness statements. They are particularly keen to speak to any drivers with dashcam footage that may have captured something before or after the incident. The suspect – who is described as a white man – was wearing black trousers, black boots and a short-sleeved black top with a black waistcoat over the top. 

He was also wearing a dark helmet with light writing on it, while his motorbike was red with a black seat and a black and grey carry case on the back. Detective Chief Inspector Gav Day, of Cheshire Police, said: “Detectives are appealing for information after a man was seriously injured near Whitchurch. “Police received reports of an incident that had taken place on the A49.
