An appeal for witnesses has been launched after a driver knocked a motorcyclist and their passenger onto the road on the Edinburgh city bypass.
Emergency services were called to the A720, between the Millerhill junction and Sheriffhall roundabout, at around 12.30pm on Sunday after a blue Harley Davidson motorcycle was struck by a dark Blue BMW SUV.
A 51-year-old man and a 33-year-old woman were knocked onto a passing caravan before falling onto the road.
They did not require medical treatment, but were left “badly shaken”.
An appeal for witnesses has now been launched after the driver of the BMW failed to stop.
Police constable Stewart Logan of Road Policing Unit said: “The 51-year-old male motorcyclist and 33-year-old female pillion passenger were left badly shaken, but did not require medical treatment.
“They were knocked into the side of a passing caravan, resulting in them falling onto the roadway. The driver towing the caravan stopped and assisted. There will likely be some damage to the near side body panels of the SUV.
“We are looking for any witnesses or any motorists who have dash-cam footage, you may have captured something that can assist our enquiries.
