Police investigating a collision which left a teenager with potentially life-changing injuries are appealing for information.

The crash happened just before 9.30pm on Tuesday, July 31 on the A1 Barnet bypass southbound carriageway, at the junction with Trotters Bottom.

A black RT 125 motorcycle was in collision with a grey Peugeot Boxer van, leaving the motorcyclist – a 19-year-old woman – with serious and potentially life-changing injuries.

The driver of the van was not injured.

PC Kirk Caldicutt, from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit, said: “We are keen to speak to anyone who may have witnessed what happened, or the events leading up to or following the collision.

“Any piece of information, however seemingly insignificant, could prove very helpful to our investigation.

“We would also like to speak to any drivers who were using that stretch of road around the time of the collision, and have dash cams fitted to their vehicles.

“If you do, please make contact with us.”

Anyone with information is asked to email PC Caldicutt on kirk.caldicutt@herts.pnn.police.uk, report online at https://www.herts.police.uk/Report or call the non-emergency number 101, quoting ISR 857 of July 31.
