Updated: Motorcyclist killed in A127 pile-up

First published in Echo News by

A BIKER died instantly after colliding with a lorry on the A127.
 

Witnesses claim the motorcyclist - a 43-year-old man from Southend - may have skidded on black ice.


The crash, which happened at 6.40am today  closed the London-bound carriageway for more than six hours while police and emergency crews dealt with the scene.
 

The closure of the busy dual carriageway caused traffic chaos in and around Basildon as motorists desperately tried to find alternative routes.

It's the London bound that is closed, not the Southend bound as has been reported here.

As others have said, it's westbound that's closed. It's pretty much the same place that a motorcyclist came to grief several years ago. I came past eastbound 10 minutes after it had happened and traffic was already backing up to the A132.

I am saddened by the news yet incensed by the comment made by GentleGiant. Bikers in general at that time in the morning are going to work just like everyone else. If car drivers used the lanes as they should rather than hog the outside lane then bikers wouldn't feel the need to go down the inside. I ride the A127 every day, there are a small number of car drivers who maintain good lane discipline, Van drivers are much better and Lorrys are great. I always acknowledge any vehicle moving to let me pass. come on you poor car drivers, letting a bike through takes a second or 2, don't be obstructive, It may just cost us our life!!!

My earlier post was made prior to the news that someone had died - my post along with others were removed, quite rightly.

However that does not change my view that many bikers are a danger to themselves and others in the way they ride.

Of course this person, who's family are now affected by this tragedy, may have been a decent biker and therefore RIP.

"Many bikers are a danger to themselves and others". Yes. Many car drivers are a danger to themselves and even more of a danger to others. There are fools in any walk of life, and quite a lot of them.

If you're of the opinion bikers are the worst of the bunch, though, think again. You've only seen it from a car driver perspective. Spend a few days on a bike or ask a dual licence holder for his or her opinion, and then you'll understand. And quite why you think it appropriate to voice an anti-bike opinion in a thread where a biker died is beyond me.

RIP.

Never judge someone without the full facts, the moment I see the accident the bike was only going about 50 mph And in a straight line he was driving very safely I hope I never have to witness something like this ever again in my life again, this was just a guy trying to earn a living trying to get to work, think before you judge someone this was just a freak accident...
