A motorcyclist is fighting for his life in hospital after being critically injured in a Moray crash.
The 29-year-old man sustained serious head injuries in the collision with a purple Mazda on the B9016 Keith to Buckie road, near Aultmore, shortly after 8pm last night.
He was airlifted to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary for treatment.
The road was closed for several hours for accident investigators to examine the scene. It reopened in the early hours of this morning.
Sergeant Jon Barron, of Police Scotland, said: “Detailed inquiries are under way in order to establish the full circumstances of this serious collision.
“I would like to take this opportunity to urge any potential witnesses to come forward and speak to us.
“In particular, the enquiry team are interested in speaking to anyone who witnessed the actual collision and anyone who saw either of the vehicles prior to the incident or who may have been driving in the immediate area around the time.”
