A grandfather has died after he was driven from the scene of a crash in the back of a car in Adelaide.

John Hadley, 45, was travelling down an Enfield street at about 2am before he lost control and came off his motorbike, the vehicle coming to rest up to 50 metres from him.

Residents, woken by the noise, ran outside to find Hadley wedged under a parked van.

As they called for help, a car pulled up alongside.

“There were friends of him that came and tried to pull him out from underneath the van,” the van owner told 9News.

A woman, believed to be a relative, took matters into her own hands.
