Police Scotland is appealing for witnesses following a collision on the A830 near Lochailort at about 3pm yesterday (Sunday) which involved three motorcycles.

A 60-year old male was taken by Air Ambulance to Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, in Glasgow with serious injuries. The male riders of the other motorcycles sustained minor injuries.

Sergeant Chris Murray from the Road Policing Unit commented: This was a collision involving three motorcycles where one of the rider’s sustained serious injuries. I would ask that anyone who witnessed the collision, or has dash cam footage, and has not already spoken to one of my officers that they get in touch on 101 and quote reference number 2742 of August 25.

‘I would like to thank the public for their patience during the closure of this route while investigation work was carried out.’
