The collision occurred at around 7.40pm on the Dungannon Road.

One man was rushed to Craigavon Area Hospital, where his injuries are not believed to be life threatening.

“The driver of the motorcycle was taken to hospital for treatment for injuries, which are not believed to be life threatening.

“The Dungannon Road was closed for a several hours while officers investigated and to allow the vehicles to be recovered.

The teenager had been travelling along the road, just a few miles from his home, when the accident happened shortly after midnight on November 8.
