A WOMAN in her 30s died after being thrown off a motorcycle in a crash over the weekend.

The incident happened on the A435 just before 9.30pm on Saturday (March 31) when a gold Renault Clio and a silver Triumph Trophy motorbike were both travelling from the direction of Birmingham towards Mappleborough Green.

The motorbike rider and pillion passenger, who were both from Redditch, were thrown from the bike and suffered serious injuries.

Both were taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham for treatment where the rider, a man in his 40s, remains in a serious but stable condition. The passenger, who has not yet been named, died the following morning (Sunday) at 5.20am.

The road was closed until around 1.30am on Sunday (April 1) and the Clio driver, a woman in her 20s, was uninjured.

PC Mark Bullingham of West Mercia Police said: "A woman tragically lost her life and our thoughts are with her family at this sad time.

"An investigation has been launched into how and why this collision occurred."

Anyone with any information should call police on 0300 333 3000, quoting incident number 644-S-310312.
