Man falls to his death from elevated road
A motorcyclist died when he fell from an elevated road after his machine collided with a side barrier on Tuesday afternoon.
The accident happened at the Wenshui Overpass of the North-South Elevated Road.
The man was confirmed dead at the scene, police said. They had got a report at 3:49pm.
No other vehicle was involved in the accident. The man was illegally riding his motorcycle on the elevated road as Shanghai bans motorcycles on all elevated roads.
An investigation is still underway.
It was not the first time that motorcycles were involved in accidents on this part of the North-South Elevated Road. There were similar incidents, both fatal, in 2007 and 2010.
