Police appeal after A92 motorbike crash

Police Scotland are appealing for witnesses following a road collision where a motorcyclist was injured.

The collision happened about 11.15am on Sunday (August 23), when a motorcycle left the road on the A92 at the Crawton junction south of Stonehaven.

The 22 year old male rider was taken by ambulance to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary having sustained serious arm and leg injuries.

Constable Derek Thow from the Stonehaven Road Policing Unit said:

“I am keen to speak with anybody who witnessed the collision or saw the rider prior to the collision on his journey north on the A92 from Montrose. The rider was wearing black and white leathers and was riding a blue Suzuki motorcycle.

“I would also like to thank local residents who tended to the motorcyclist and assisted the Ambulance crew when they arrived”.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Police on 101.

The A92 at Crawton has been the scene of several serious accidents in recent years. In 2006 a campaign was launched by locals to have double white lines painted on the road to prevent overtaking there.
