source: Northants Police

Officers investigating a serious bike collision in Northampton have appealed for one of the riders to come forward.

At about 2pm on Sunday, two off-road bikes collided on a piece of wasteland behind Main Road in Far Cotton, close to KFC.

The rider of one of the bikes, a 15-year-old boy, suffered serious injuries in the collision and had to be airlifted to Birmingham Children’s Hospital for treatment.

He had been riding a black and purple pit bike made by Stomp. The other rider was on a white, red and black trials bike and was wearing scrambling clothing.

The rider of the white, red and black bike did not stop at the scene following the collision. Instead he put his bike onto the back of a white Transit tipper van and drove away.

His van had distinctive wheels with blue inserts on them.

Anyone with any information, or who witnessed the collision, is asked to call the Drivewatch hotline on The number below.
