South Australian Police have arrested a man accused of leaving the scene of a crash involving a motorcyclist on Sunday at Freeling.


About 6pm, Sunday 5 June, police and emergency services were called to the Thiele Highway, after reports that a car towing a trailer travelling south had collided with a motorcycle travelling north, seriously injuring the rider, a 40-year-old man from Morphett Vale.


The rider was later taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital in a critical condition.
