A man on a motorcycle was in a collision with an oncoming car yesterday morning and was taken to hospital.

Emergency services were called to the corner of Drivers Rd and Grendon St following reports of a serious crash.

Constable Jonathan Chatfield said the 21-year-old had allegedly stolen the motorcycle and was seen riding ''at speed'' up Drivers Rd before he hit the car.

The man, a disqualified driver, was treated for leg injuries and taken to Dunedin Hospital by St John.
