A 19-YEAR-OLD Redditch man has been released on police bail after being arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving following a fatal collision that claimed the life of a young motorcyclist in Woodrow, in the early hours of Monday morning (October 26).

The teen, who has not been charged, has been bailed until November 23.

A 20-year-old man, also from Redditch, was arrested on suspicion of obstructing police but has not been charged and was released on police bail until November 13.

It comes after police say there may have been another motorbike involved in the collision which happened at the junction of Woodrow Drive and Woodrow South, at around 1.30am.

The motorcyclist who lost his life in the collision has been named on social media as young father Damion Milton, a bar supervisor at Studley Castle.

A paramedic officer came across the scene in the early hours of Monday morning where two men on a Honda motorcycle had been involved in the collision.

Mr Milton was pronounced dead at the scene whilst the other man, believed to be in his late teens, was taken to hospital by ambulance.

It is not yet clear which man was driving the vehicle.

Liz Clarke, who was first on the scene of the accident, was driving home when she came across the young men.

She said: “I happened to glance to the right, on the other side of the dual carriageway – I was just thinking please don’t let that be somebody who has died.”

The 46-year-old, who knows emergency first aid, added: “I just wanted to save him but there was no chance, he was gone,” she said.

Officers are appealing for witnesses and would like to speak to anyone who may have seen either vehicle before the collision.

Anyone with information should call police on 101, quoting incident 24 of October 26.
