A MOTORCYCLIST is in a serious condition in hospital following a road crash earlier this week.

The 28-year-old male was riding on the B7080 slip road eastbound towards Long Drive, shortly after exiting the Eglinton Interchange roundabout when the incident took place just before 6.30pm on Monday, March 27.

Police say the injured motorcyclist left the road for an unknown reason before colliding with the crash barriers.

He was subsequently taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow in an air ambulance - where he remains in a serious but stable condition.

Now police are launching an appeal in an effort to establish more information about the crash as they continue their investigations.

In particular, officers are looking to trace the driver of a blue car who may have seen the motorbike just before the crash.

Sergeant Paul Hughes from Police Scotland's Ayrshire road policing unit said: “As our investigations continue into what happened, I’m particularly keen to hear from the driver of a blue car who may have seen the motorbike pass them just before the crash.

"There were two motorcycles riding together - the Black Suzuki GSXR 600 which was involved in the collision, followed by a friend on a Blue Suzuki GSX S.

“I’d also urge anyone who saw what happened to get in touch. 

"Drivers in the area around that time on Monday with dash cam footage, please review this and bring anything of significance to our attention.” 

Anyone with information is urged to contact police on 101 quoting reference 2957 of March 27, 2023.
