A MOTORCYCLIST was taken to hospital last week following a road traffic collision near Fishcross.

The rider was travelling south-west, towards the village, last Tuesday when he crashed into a car just outside the Marchglen Care Centre.

After being thrown from the bike, the 24-year-old sustained a head injury and a broken leg.

A spokesperson for Police Scotland told the Advertiser that no one has yet been charged as a result of the incident.

Paramedics were called out to the scene on the A908 at around 8pm, with traffic cops arriving shortly thereafter.

The motorcyclist was conveyed to Forth Valley Royal Hospital as the crash site was taped off.

A Scottish Ambulance Service spokesperson confirmed: "We received a call at 8.02pm on Tuesday, May 23, to attend a road traffic collision on the A908 near the Gannel Hill View junction.

"We dispatched one ambulance to the scene. One male patient, in his twenties, was taken to Forth Valley Hospital."

A spokesperson for Police Scotland added: "His condition was not life threatening. No one charged at this time and inquiries ongoing."
