Biker killed in collision.
Michael Murray, 40, was riding a Suzuki GSXR 750 on the B1284 near Lumley Thicks, Chester-le-Street, County Durham, when he appeared to lose control.
Accident investigators believe Mr Murray was overtaking three cars, the first of which was waiting to turn right.
They think he braked hard, lost control and collided with a Nissan Almera and a Ford Fiesta travelling in the opposite direction.
Mr Murray, of Morton Grange Terrace, Fencehouses, County Durham, suffered serious head injuries and died at the intensive therapy unit at the James Cook University hospital in Middlesbrough.
No-one else was injured in the accident which happened last Thursday at 3.30pm. Anyone with information about the incident can call (0191) 375 2159.
