Police motorcyclist injured after swerving to avoid oncoming car
POLICE are continuing to appeal for information after a police motorcyclist injured himself trying to avoid an oncoming car.
The incident happened on the A40 at the Bancyfelin junction, west of Carmarthen.
Dyfed-Powys Police said the light-coloured car turned right into the eastbound carriageway, forcing the police motorcyclist to lose control in order to avoid a collision.
His injuries were not serious.
A spokeswoman for the force said: “A police motorcyclist travelling towards Carmarthen had to take evasive action to avoid colliding with a medium-sized car that crossed the central reservation from the westbound carriageway, turning right into the path of the motorcyclist.
“This manoeuvre caused the motorcyclist to lose control and as a result was thrown from his bike.
“The car in question did not stop at the scene and was last seen heading in the general direction of Carmarthen.”
She added: “The police motorcyclist did not sustain any serious injuries.”
The incident happened at around 8.55am on Saturday, August 24.
Earlier this year a mother and baby were airlifted from a field near the same junction following a single-vehicle accident involving a Renault Megane.
They were then transferred by road ambulance to Glangwili Hospital, Carmarthen.
