A TOURIST has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving after a motorcyclist from Billingshurst was killed on the A29 in Bury on Sunday (August 24).
The 20-year-old motorcyclist, who was riding a Honda VFR 800F motorcycle, suffered fatal injuries when he hit a car at around 4.30pm outside the Squire and Horse pub.
He had been travelling south in the company of another motorcyclist, also 20, from Fernhurst, Haslemere, in Surrey – riding a Kawasaki ZXR400 – who was unhurt.
The car was a Volvo V40 hatchback driven by a 69-year-old man on holiday in the UK from his home in Bermuda.
He suffered shock, and his passenger, a 64-year-old woman also from Bermuda, sustained a broken collar bone, whiplash and shock.
Both were taken to St Richard’s Hospital, Chichester, for treatment.
