Crash biker flown to hospital
A motorcyclist was seriously injured in a crash with another biker on the A84 near Blair Drummond Safari Park shortly before 11.30am on Friday.
Police, firefighters and paramedics attended the incident and the stretch of road remained closed for several hours.
Police are now investigating the incident. A spokeswoman said:“A male motorcyclist sustained serious injuries and was treated at the scene by Scottish Ambulance Service. He was later transported to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Glasgow, via helicopter.
“The other motorcyclist was uninjured. Inquiries into this collision are continuing and anyone with information is asked to come forward.”
The stretch of the A84 approaching Blair Drummond Safari Park has been declared an accident blackspot by nearby residents.
They have raised safety concerns over the turn-off to the park as well as long queues on the approach to the turn-off.
Campaigners have long asked transport bosses to rethink the road layout.
In February 2015 queue warning signs were erected at the junction between the A84 and the entrance to the park.
The Observer reported last month that Transport Scotland bosses, the owners of the safari park and local representatives were to meet to discuss the safety concerns.
