Fatal road motorcycle collision, Marlow

Witnesses with information about the last few days of the life of a biker who died when he came off his motorcycle on a road near Marlow on Friday (13/3) morning have been asked to come forward.

Christopher McKenzie (pictured above) from Derbyshire was aged 29 when he was found at 11.55am at the side of the road in Quarry Wood Road, Bisham by a walker. It is believed that he came off his black Kawasaki 500 motorbike some time before being found. The exact time of the accident is not known. It is believed he had been travelling from the direction of Cookham and Winter Hill towards Bisham and came off at a sharp bend near to Longridge. Police attended, but he was declared dead at the scene.

Investigating officer PC Nick Brown said:

“Chris left his home in Derbyshire on February 28, and it is believed he spent two days with a family member in Hertfordshire after he left home.

“It is not known where he was staying after that or where he was coming from or going to at the time of the collision and his family are keen to find this information out. He had spent time in the Windsor area as a child so it is possible that he had been staying with friends but his family have no details.

“It would assist the investigation and, more importantly, Chris’s family if it could be established where he spent the days leading up to his death. This information would allow them to resolve some of the unanswered questions they are having to deal with after this tragic event.”

Quarry Wood Road was closed for approximately four hours while police conducted an initial investigation.
