Much of the Helston- Falmouth road was closed today due to a serious traffic accident.

At  around 1.45pm on Saturday 12th February a collision occurred on the A394 at Edgumbe, near Penryn close to the Gweek turning. The collision involved a motorcycle and a white Citroen Berlingo van. Two males, believed to be the occupants of the van, were arrested on suspicion of leaving the scene of the accident and for providing a positive breath test. 

The rider of the motorbike, a 44 year old male from the Truro area, has multiple injuries but remains in a stable condition in the Royal Cornwall Hospital.  The road was closed for an examination of the scene and is expected to re-open around 7.30pm

Police are appealing for witnesses or anyone who may have information about the collision to contact them on 08452 777444 quoting log 540 12/02/11
