Counties Manukau Police are at the scene of a serious crash on Roscommon Road where a motorcyclist has received serious injuries.

Witnesses have told Police that the Ford Explorer turned into the path of the motorcycle, into Robert Ross Place, near McDonald’s.

The 19 year old male victim has been taken to hospital with facial and chest injuries.

Anyone who knows anything about this crash or can tell Police more about the other vehicle that was involved is encouraged to call Police on 111 or to report information anonymously contact the organisation Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
