A motorcyclist has died and two others were injured following a crash between a car and two motorbikes in Ayrshire.

Emergency services were called to the road on the A719 between Crossroads and Galston on Saturday around 2.40pm.

A man aged 59, riding a Harley Davidson Fatcat motorcycle, was pronounced dead at the scene of the collision.

A 69-year-old man, the rider of a Ducati Diavel motorcycle, and a 28-year-old woman, the driver of a Vauxhall Insignia car, were taken to hospital and released following treatment.

The road was closed for several hours while investigations were carried out and reopened around 10pm.

Police are now appealing for information and witnesses to come forward.

Road policing sergeant Chris Hoggans said: “My thoughts are with the family and friends of the man who died following this incident.

“We know from enquiries so far that the road was busy at the time and a lot of people will have witnessed the crash.

“I’m particularly keen to trace the driver of a white vehicle, possibly a Honda Civic, who may have seen what happened.

“I would urge anyone with information or who saw the vehicles prior to the crash to get in touch with us.

“Similarly, anyone with dash cam footage of the A719 near Crossroads from around 2.40pm on Saturday, please come forward.

“Anyone with information should contact police on 101 quoting reference 2472 of June 17, 2023.”
