One dead, two hospitalised after three crashes on Fleurieu over weekend

One man has died and two other people were hospitalised after three crashes across the Fleurieu Peninsula over the weekend.

An 88-year-old man died after the car he was driving hit a tree on Strathalbyn Road, Biggs Flat on Sunday, July 26.

Emergency services were called to the scene about 10.15am, but sadly there was nothing they could do to save the Stirling man, who died at the scene.

The road was closed for several hours as Major Crash Investigators examined the scene and other elements, including whether a medical episode was a factor.

The man's death is the 59th life lost on the state's roads this year, compared to 66 at the same time last year.

Earlier that morning, a car collided with a tree on Langhorne Creek Road, Langhorne Creek.

Emergency services attended the scene at 3am and one person was taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital.

There are no other details available at this time.

On Saturday morning, a Murray Bridge man was airlifted to the Royal Adelaide Hospital after he lost control of his motorcycle near the intersection of Phillips Hill Road and Bull Creek Road at Paris Creek.

A SAPOL spokeswoman said it did not appear the 49-year-old rider had sustained life-threatening injuries.

She said the investigation is looking at whether the rider had a near miss with a car which caused him to lose control.

The road was closed in both directions as the scene was examined and cleared by police.
