Man, 23, in crash on East Broadway

A man has been taken to hospital after a crash on East Broadway near the junction with Lane Hill.

According to police, a 23-year-old man on a motorcycle crashed into a parked car near Hamma Galleries at about 6.35pm.

“He was conscious and responsive while being transported via ambulance to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital, but the extent of his injuries is currently unknown,” a spokesman added.

Early reports suggested that the rider may have been being pursued by police when the crash took place on the northern verge of the outbound lane.

Traffic on East Broadway was blocked from Spurling Hill to the Crow Lane roundabout as forensics officers processed the scene.

Police advised at 8.25pm that the road was open again to normal traffic.

As of this afternoon, the rider was described as being in a stable condition at the hospital's Intensive Care Unit.

Anyone with information about the collision is urged to contact police through the main police telephone number, 295-0011.
