One witness who was at the scene told the Oxford Mail that they saw the motorbikes ‘pulling wheelies’ prior to the incident.

They added: “The lorry driver was marshalling another lorry back into a space and the blue car had slowed down for the lorry, and in turn one of the bikes hit the blue car and spun, and the bike slid on the floor and hit the marshalling lorry driver.

“He went about 10 feet in the air and landed on his back and smashed his head.”
