A MOTORCYCLE rider and his pillion passenger were knocked off their bike in a crash this afternoon.

The accident happened at about 2pm at a junction on the A1088 at Norton, near Bury St Edmunds, known as the “dog crossroads” and involved a red Honda VFR bike and a grey Renault Clio.

The 40-year-old rider suffered only minor injuries and his pillion passenger, a 44-year-old woman, was taken by land ambulance to West Suffolk Hospital but was not seriously hurt.

A Suffolk Accident and Rescue Service (SARS) doctor was called to the scene to assess the patients. The East Anglian Air Ambulance was initially called out but was stood down as it was not required.

The 30-year-old driver of the car was unhurt.
