Marriage torn apart by motorcycle crash


By Christine Lavelle

A FEMALE motorcyclist died when the bike she was driving veered off the road, leaving her husband – who was riding on the back – with only minor injuries.

She is said to have lost control of the motorbike when driving on an A9 slip road near Pitlochry, Perthshire, on Saturday night.

A passing doctor gave the woman emergency CPR, but she was later pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics, who were flown in by helicopter from Dundee.

A spokesman for Scottish Ambulance said: “We were called to a motorcycle accident just before 6pm on Saturday.

“Both casualties were riding on the same bike, and the woman was seriously injured but her husband only sustained cuts and bruises and was able to walk away from the crash.

“A doctor who was passing stopped to administer CPR to the female driver, but when our emergency helicopter crew was flown in from Dundee she was pronounced dead at the scene.”
