Police have named a Lichfield man who died when he was knocked off his moped by a lorry.
Benjamin Warrington, 24 and from Agincourt Road, died after the crash on the A38 near the Streethay slip road at 5.25am yesterday (February 21).
Police are now trying to trace the HGV which collided with his 50cc white Yamaha bike, but did not stop at the scene.
Insp Jed White, Lichfield District Local Policing Team Commander, said: “We are trying to locate the HGV and want to speak to anyone who was in the area at the time who may have witnessed the collision or seen the moped travelling northbound on the A38.
“In particular, we want to speak to the occupants of a silver people carrier type vehicle that travelled from near the railway station in Lichfield, joined the A38 at Streethay and came off at the Fradley park junction.
“It is believed the HGV was possibly red and black and had curtain sides. We want to speak to anyone who was travelling along this section of the A38 between 5.15am and 5.35am.
“The HGV was travelling north so it may have left the A38 at Fradley Business Park or continued on towards Burton and Derby.”
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Staffordshire Police on 101 quoting incident 68 of 21 February, or alternatively Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
