Passing driver finds rider’s body

Passing driver finds rider's body

Queensland Police are appealing for witnesses who saw a Suzuki GSX1400 (similar to the photo above) after a passing motorist found the body of the 58-year-old Nobby male rider on the side of a Darling Downs road.

The Forensic Crash Unit says the rider was found on Cudmores Rd about 5.50pm yesterday (Friday, 13 December 2019).

They are now appealing for witnesses to the incident.

“It is believed the 58-year-old Nobby man was riding south on Cudmores Road between Cambooya and Nobby when he lost control of his motorcycle, leaving the roadway and crashing into a concrete culvert,” police say.

Investigators are now seeking witnesses or anyone with relevant dashcam footage to contact them.

Police would like to speak to anyone who saw a blue and white Suzuki GSX 1400 heading south from Toowoomba late yesterday afternoon.

They believe a box may have been carried “in some fashion” on the motorcycle at the time. We suspect they mean a top box.
