Police have named the motorcyclist killed in a crash near Dunsandel yesterday.

He was Charles Herbert Munslow, 72, of Rangiora.

Police said initial investigations indicated Munslow failed to take a moderate right-hand bend over a railway crossing, losing control of the motorcycle and hitting a guardrail.

Speed was likely to have been a contributing factor, police said.

No other vehicles were involved.

The accident happened near the intersection between Selwyn Lake Rd and State Highway 1 about 9am.
