Gardai investigating a serious road traffic collision involving a motorcyclist at the weekend are continuing their appeal for witnesses.
The collision between a silver Volkswagen car and a motorbike took place at 2.20pm last Saturday on the Dublin Road, at the junction of Ballyloughane Road and Renmore Road. It is believed that the motorcyclist had been in the bus lane when the car collided with him.
According to a spokeperson at Galway Garda Station the motorcyclist received serious leg injuries and was rushed to hospital where he is still being treated and is undergoing surgery.
The road was closed off until 9.30pm for a forensic collision examination to be carried out causing severe traffic disruption in the area.
Gardai say there were a lot of motorists in the area at the time and are asking anyone with information to contact them on 091 538000.
