A motorcyclist has been injured after coming off his bike during a crash.

The red and black off road bike and a black Vauxhall Meriva collided on Hilton Road in Aberdeen just after 6pm on Thursday.

The 21-year-old rider came off his motorcycle in the crash and had to be treated for non life threatening injuries. The woman driving the Vauxhall was not injured.

The road was closed for several hours and diversions put in place as police carried out an investigation into the collision.

Sergeant Warnock appealed for witnesses to the crash.

He said: "A white Ford Focus was seen travelling with the motorcyclist immediately prior to the collision and if anyone has information on either vehicle’s movements they should contact police."

Anyone with information is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101.
