TWO bikers have been killed in separate crashes in the Borders over the weekend.

And another remains in a serious condition in hospital.

A 53-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene after colliding with a car south of Jedburgh on Sunday afternoon.

And the previous day a 30-year-old man died at Borders General Hospital after colliding with a parked Kia Sportage in Eildon Road, Hawick.

Police are appealing for witnesses to Sunday's A68 crash.

The biker, who was riding a Triumph Thruxton, collided with an Audi A6 around two miles south of Jedburgh at 4.45pm.

A second motorcyclist also collided with the Audi - and remains in Borders General Hospital where his condition is described as serious but not life-threatening.

The A68 was closed for around seven hours to allow for a full investigation to take place.

Sergeant Fraser Wood from Police Scotland’s Road Policing Unit said: “Tragically as a result of the collision a man has lost his life and our thoughts remain with his family and friends at this time.

“I am eager to hear from anyone who may have been travelling on the A68 and who saw the vehicles immediately prior to the collision, or who witnessed what happened, to contact us as soon as possible.

“Similarly anyone who may have any information that can help with our investigations is asked to come forward.”

Anyone with information can contact Police Scotland via 101 or anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
