GoFundMe started for rider’s family

Brian Carter GoFundMe

A GoFundMe page has started for the family of Brian Carter, a father of four who died when his motorcycle collided head-on with a Toyota last Friday on the Sunshine Coast.

Queensland Police say Brian, 37, was riding south on the Nambour Connection Rd at Parklands when it collided with the car heading in the opposite direction from the Bruce Highway offramp about 11.30am.

“The rider was taken to Nambour Hospital but was declared deceased shortly afterwards,” police say.

A GoFundMe page for Brian’s family has now been started and already raised more than $11,000.

Brian leaves behind his wife Alana and their four young daughters.

Family, friends and the motorcycle community are asked to go to the GoFundMe page help raise some financial support for this young family in their time of need.

The driver of the Toyota was transported to Sunshine Coast University Hospital in a serious condition.

Police are appealing for anyone who may have been travelling in the area at the time of the crash or has dash cam vision to come forward.

The Forensic Crash Unit is investigating.
