Biker dies on A3 after man jumps from bridge

Mans possible suicide leads to death of motorcyclist

A BIKER has died on the A3 after crashing into a parked ambulance which was there to attend to a man who had jumped off a bridge into oncoming traffic.

The ambulance crew had been called to the man who had jumped off the Clayton Road bridge over the A3 just before the Kingston bypass.

The London Ambulance Service attended the scene and parked their ambulance on the other side of the carriageway - the southbound side of the A3. Half an hour later, while the ambulance was still parked and the crew were still attending to the man who jumped from the bridge, a male motorcyclist collided with the ambulance. A car was also involved in the accident.

Two air ambulances were then scrambled to the scene but but both men were pronounced dead at the scene.

A Surrey Police spokesman said witnesses to these incidents should call their investigation unit on 01483 639922, quoting reference P13074412.
