One person sustained serious injuries after a road traffic collision on the A38 at Buckfastleigh.

Police investigating a road traffic collision on the A38 at Buckfastleigh on Monday, 13 September, are appealing for any witnesses to come forward. 

Officers were called to reports of a road traffic collision involving a motorbike and a lorry at the top of the southbound off-slip of the A38, at the junction with Dartbridge Road, at around 8.10pm.

It involved a black Mutt 125cc motorbike, ridden by a 27-year-old woman, and a white Volvo articulated goods vehicle driven by a 51-year-old man.

The motorbike rider sustained serious leg injuries and was taken to Derriford Hospital for treatment. The lorry driver was uninjured.

The road was closed for approximately three hours whilst officers conducted an examination of the scene.

The Devon and Cornwall Police Roads Policing Team would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident, has any information or dashcam footage that could help with their enquiries.
