Two men required hospital treatment following a motorcycle crash in Letchworth last week.
Police are now appealing for information and witnesses after the collision, which happened at Letchworth Gate, at the junction with Baldock Lane, on Thursday.
Just before 10.20pm, two men were riding a green motorcycle when they lost control and were thrown from the bike.
The driver, aged in his 20s, suffered serious injuries and was taken to hospital, where it is believed he remains. The passenger, also in his 20s, suffered minor injuries.
Road closures were put in place to allow emergency services to work at the scene, but these were lifted by the early hours of Friday.
Detective Sergeant David Burstow, from Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire’s (BCH) Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “We are working to establish the cause of this incident and are keen to hear from anybody who saw the motorcycle prior to the collision.
“Earlier in the evening, we had received a call reporting the motorcycle as stolen from the vicinity of the community centre on Bingen Road in the Westmill area of Hitchin.
