Man airlifted to hospital!

A STRANRAER MAN was airlifted by helicopter to hospital directly from the scene of a four-vehicle crash on the A77 road north of Cairnryan on
Thursday.

And the road was partially closed for about an hour and a half.

Now, one of the drivers involved is being reported to the Procurator Fiscal following the crash which occurred about 400 yards south of the border with Strathclyde.

The 26-year-old injured man was riding a K-registration Kawasaki motorbike.

He sustained a number of injuries to his legs and was detained for observation in Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary. None of his injuries were described as serious. The bike was extensive damaged.

Also involved were a Volvo HGV and trailer being driven by a 54-year-old man from the Manchester area who was not hurt and no damage was caused to his lorry; a Honda Civic car owned and driven by a 43-year-old woman from Perth who was unhurt, although the car sustained moderate damage and a Case 150 tractor and agricultural trailer, being driven by a 29-year-old man from Ayrshire who was unhurt and no damage was caused to the vehicle.
