A MAN was arrested on suspicion of drink-driving last night after a collision on the Middle Glanmire Road left a motorcyclist with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

A car and motorbike collided at around 5.15pm yesterday while travelling from St Luke’s towards Mayfield.

Gardai, ambulance and the fire brigade were alerted to the scene, which was closed off for a number of hours.

The motorcyclist, a man in his 40s, was taken by ambulance to Cork University Hospital. His injuries were described as serious but not life-threatening.

He has since been released without charge.

A Garda investigation into the matter is continuing.
