POLICE are hunting a hit-and-run BMW driver who left the scene of a fatal collision with a motorcyclist in Essex early this morning.

Police believe the car collided head-on with the bike and is likely to have suffered front-end damage, and are appealing to the public to help trace the BMW.

Officers were called at 4.15am following reports of a motorcyclist hit by a car which failed to stop on Tylers Road in Roydon. A 24-year-old man from Harlow was treated by paramedics but pronounced dead at the scene.

The car was travelling towards Nazeing and may have a broken radiator grille, according to Essex Police.

A force spokesman said: ‘An investigation has begun into the incident and police believe that a BMW car which was travelling in the opposite direction towards Nazeing was in collision with the motorbike but failed to stop.

‘This vehicle is likely to have front end damage including a broken radiator grill.

‘Anyone with information is asked to call the Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 101 or ring Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.’
