AN URGENT appeal has been launched by Isle of Wight police to trace the occupants of a vehicle who may have vital information about a fatal collision.

The collision, occurred at around 4.20pm on Sunday, June 15, when a scooter being ridden by Kenneth Mead, 59, collided with a post at the side of the A3054 Binstead Road after losing control, according to police.

Police said they believe the occupants of a grey vehicle, who stopped to help, may hold vital information to help with their investigation.

Sgt David Sanderson from the Roads Policing Unit said: "We are trying to trace the occupants of this grey car, possibly an estate, which was seen driving behind a yellow Mini shortly before the incident.

"Both drivers stopped and helped administer first aid at the scene prior to our officers arriving.

"We believe the occupants of this vehicle are key witnesses and may be able to help with our investigation. If you were the driver or passenger/s travelling in this grey vehicle please call me as soon as possible on 101, quoting Operation Mayfly."

Officers are carrying out further enquiries and preparing a file for the coroner.
