Man killed after quad bike collision in Cardiff street

A 20-year-old man has died after the quad bike he was driving collided with a bollard in the Roath area of Cardiff.

South Wales Police said that the collision happened at around 3.10pm on Pen-y-wain Road, at its junction with Morlais Street, where a green Kawasaki quad bike ridden by a 20-year-old local man collided with a traffic bollard.

The man was taken to the University Hospital of Wales, but was pronounced dead. The coroner has been informed.
