A FEMALE biker was airlifted to Southampton General Hospital with suspected life-changing injuries following a crash on the A36 near Warminster yesterday (Sunday October 25).

Police are appealing for witnesses following the serious collision on the Warminster bypass involving two motorcycles and a car.

Yesterday at about 2.30pm, between the Clay Hill Roundabout and the Granada Services Roundabout, a group of motorcyclists were travelling north along the A36 when one of the party collided with a Mercedes car travelling southbound.

A second motorcyclist also fell from his machine and the Mercedes car ended up in a ditch.

The female rider of the first bike was taken to Southampton General Hospital with suspected life changing injuries. The male biker suffered a dislocated shoulder.

Forensic collision investigator PC Tom Bateson said: "We are appealing to anyone who was driving along the A36, near Warminster, between 2pm and 2.30pm yesterday.

"Did you see the collision or any of the vehicles involved before the collision?

"Also, we would like to hear from anyone in the area who may not have seen the collision but may have dash cam footage to assist us in determining the weather and road conditions around the time of the incident."

Police closed the road in both directions, between the roundabout with the A350 and the roundabout with the A362 towards Longleat.
