Saw this incident early on heading towards Wickford. The bike which was a 650cc sports bike seemed in one piece as it was standing on its stand on the side of the road. Couldnt of been to serious. Hope the biker makes a speedy recovery.

The biker and the bike was Laying on the ground near the grass but somebody moved it as it was a hazard which is why you saw it standing. We're all ok in the truck hope the biker is on the mend!!!

Yeah I saw the truck. I couldnt put 2 and 2 together though. How can a truck and motorbike collide and leave no damage to the bike. Thought you may have been a witness or something and stopped.

Statistically far more bikes are hit by cars, or trucks, than hit cars, or trucks, so which is it? Did the bike hit the truck or did the truck hit the bike?

I'm glad the biker is OK.

No damage to the bike probably means only cosmetic damage. Anything other than a sideways glancing blow and the bike would have melted like chocolate.

Maybe it was the idiotic biker that went past me on the A13 - must have been doing 100+ - some bikers are just asking to die.

The accident had happened because the vehicle in front decided to do a u turn, ignoring the No u turn sign and the road hatchings. The bike was following and had nowhere to go but into the truck once it started the u turn. The biker was hurt but was wearing proper protective gear and it probably saved his life. Just goes to show the consequences of ignoring road signs and markings.
