A series of road traffic accidents on Scotland’s roads tragically claimed three lives this weekend. Two died after their motorbike collided with a car yesterday on the A836 Thurso to Reay road at Drumhollistan in Caithness and a 19 year old was killed when his car crashed into a railway bridge in Lochgelly, Fife.
According to reports, Northern Constabulary say the man had been driving his motorcycle with the woman riding as a pillion passenger when the accident happened in the Highlands. A female passenger was also involved in the Fife car crash but is understood to have escaped serious injury.
