Re: A biker was killed by a pheasant flying into his crash helmet fracturing his skull.<br />
Father-of-four Robert Patterson, 51, from Llandudno Junction in north Wales, was doing up to 65mph when the bird flew out of the hedgerow,<br />
An inquest heard a biker pal riding behind saw a “plume of feathers” before Robert crashed.<br />
A post mortem revealed the force of the 6lb female pheasant hitting Robert’s helmet was enough to fracture his skull.<br />
Pathologist Dr Mark Lord said: “It was a significant impact. It was instant death.<br />
“Mr Patterson suffered multiple injuries including a blow to the head and facial injuries, as well as the skull fracture”<br />
Window cleaner Robert was riding with friends through Mid Wales when the tragedy happened on the A470 last November.
