The teenager is said to be 18 and from St Margaret's.
It comes as police appeal for help after the crash on the Dover Road in Ringwould at 8.40am on Saturday.
A Ribble road racing-style bike had crashed with a blue Vauxhall Vivaro van travelling in the same direction.

The road was closed for the investigation by the Serious Collision Investigation team, but reopened at 2.50pm.
