Calls for action on a Lancashire danger road have been made today after two people were killed in a motorcycle horror crash.
Police and firefighters were called to Mythop Road, near Weeton, at around 3.50pm on Sunday following a crash involving a Honda motorbike and a tractor.
The bike rider and his female pillion passenger were both pronounced dead at the scene.
It is understood they had been travelling in convoy with two other motorcycles when the crash happened around half a mile from the junction with Preston New Road.
Today calls were made for increased safety measures following the crash.
One community leader believes double solid white lines should be painted along the length of the road to warn drivers not to attempt to overtake.
Coun Malcolm Hyland, vice-chairman of Staining Parish Council, said: “The road is quite straight but as you come down the hill from Preston new Road you go out of the 30mph limit and the road bends to the right and raises and you can’t see round the corner.
“As you come up the hill you can then see Chain Lane.
“It is that bend. I don’t know what you can do to prevent it other than, as you come out of Premium Bonds, to put double whites in the middle to stop overtaking.
“People do try to overtake, make no mistake about it.
“There’s been one or two crashes down there over the years.”
Police confirmed the 46-year-old man and his 25-year-old passenger, who were in a relationship, were from the Blackpool area.
The tractor driver was “shocked but uninjured”.
Another motorbike, a Suzuki GSX750, riding in a convoy with the Honda, was not involved.
Sgt Malcolm Bell, of the Lancashire Police road policing unit, asked anyone who witnessed the collision or had seen the motorcycles prior to the incident to contact police.
He said: “I would appeal to anyone who witnessed the collision itself or who saw these two bikes in the lead up to the collision to get in touch.”
Anyone with information should call police on 101, quoting log number 1194 of September 9.
