An investigation into the death of a motorcyclist who was thrown into a crash barrier on the M40 is still ongoing, a coroner stated today.

Leo Buckingham passed away aged 41 on March 10 after he was involved in a collision at junction 1a of the motorway, near Denham.

Mr Buckingham, an art technician from Banbury, Oxfordshire, was riding a Suzuki GSXR1000 motorbike when he was in a crash with a blue Volvo XC40.

At a pre-inquest review into Mr Buckingham’s death today (Thursday) at Beaconsfield Coroners’ Court, assistant coroner for Buckinghamshire Ian Wade told the court that there were no updates from the police on the investigation into his death.

The court heard how the police investigation is still ongoing, and Mr Wade adjourned proceedings to a future pre-inquest review.

At a previous pre-inquest review, the court heard how Mr Buckingham was driving in the third lane of the motorway when the Volvo entered the lane “for reasons not established.”
