A MOTORCYCLIST has suffered serious injuries after he collided with a car on a Hampshire road.

The 22-year-old man was taken to the specialist neurological unit at Royal Hampshire County Hospital for head and leg injuries following the crash last night.

Emergency services were initially treating the Romsey man for life-threatening injuries but on arrival at the hospital medics said he was in a serious but not life-threatening condition.

The man was riding his orange Pulse Adrenaline scrambler bike from Braishfield towards Timsbury when he collided with a green Vauxhall Vectra travelling from Belbins to Cupernham Lane.

The smash happened on Sandy Lane in Belbins.

The driver of the Vectra, a 51-year-old man from Romsey, was seen by paramedics on the scene but it is believed he did not suffer any injuries.

A Hampshire police spokesman said an A&E nurse was on the scene and was able to begin treatment on the injured biker, who remained conscious throughout.

Both the motorbike and the car were recovered by police for examination.

Police are appealing for anyone who saw the collision at about 7pm. Call Sgt Glen Barham at Totton Roads Policing Unit quoting Operation Ganton on 101.
