The motorcyclist was taken to Clutha Health First by ambulance with suspected chest and leg injuries. The driver of the Toyota was shaken but uninjured. Snr Const Corlet said a member of the public heard a motorcycle travelling at speed a short time before the crash.

The cause of the crash was not yet known and inquiries were continuing, he said.
