Police have launched an appeal for witnesses after a 51 year old Sittingbourne male motorcyclist died on the A2 London Road in Bapchild on Sunday 6 September. Kent Police told SFM News that a blue and silver Suzuki motorbike was travelling along the A2 in the direction of Teynham when it was involved in a collision with a silver Volkswagen Jetta at the junction with Hempstead Lane just after 10am. Emergency services, including Kent Air Ambulance attended but the biker died at the scene.
The biker has been named as local man Andrew David Beaney.
In a tribute David’s family said:
‘He was a loving family man and a hard working father of four. Andrew was also a husband and a grandfather of four who loved his dog.
‘He loved both watching and playing football and he had many friends. He will be sorely missed especially by his family and all who knew him.’
