A motorbike rider has been injured following a collision with a car on Nabbs Lane in Hucknall.

The incident happened at around 10.40am on Sunday.

A police spokesman said the male rider had suffered ‘serious but not life-threatening injuries’ after hitting the side of a silver car.

Residents have been calling for more traffic-calming measures on Nabbs Lane after an 11-year-old boy was struck by two vehicles on Tuesday October 20 at the junction with Godber Road. He remains in a critical condition at Nottingham’s Queen’s Medical Centre.

Nabbs Lane resident Stuart Kenward, who launched a petition to improve road safety measures on the road, witnessed the aftermath of the collision on Sunday.

He said: “As I reversed out of my driveway I thought ‘Not again.’ Paramedics were working on someone in the middle of the road. There were two ambulances and an off-road motorbike smashed up.

“I took pictures to show what happened. This is not a-once-in-a-blue-moon thing.

“I don’t know whether he lost control and hit the car or what happened.”

Police closed the road while the rider was treated, but are unable to say more at this stage.

More 50 people turned up for the meeting led by Sherwood MP Mark Spencer to discuss safety on the lane.

Mr Kenward added: “People care and they want change. But here is yet another statistic

“In the year I have lived her there have been four serious incidents and there has been a death on the estate.

“Every night you can hear cars and bikes burning up and down Nabbs Lane.

“This was a young lad on an off-road motorbike. Did nobody learn from Cheek? That family have still lost their son. Has anyone learned any lessons?”

Mr Kenward believes urgent measures are needed on the road to prevent more accidents.

He said: “Humpty speed bumps won’t do the job. The Highways Agency needs to pull their finger out before another family has to go through this.”

Police have appealed for witnesses to the October 20 incident. Anyone who thinks they saw the victim before or after the collision should also get in touch on 101 quoting incident 770 of 20 October 2015.
