Rider dies three weeks after crash

Crash weeks

A 34-year-old male rider died in hospital yesterday (26 February 2020) from injuries sustained in a crash near Warrnambool, Victoria, three weeks ago.

Victorian Police say the Kensington man was riding his bike on Illowa Road when he collided with a vehicle near the intersection of Princes Highway about 9.30pm on Saturday, 8 February, 2020.

He sustained life-threatening injuries and was taken to hospital in a serious condition where he died yesterday, almost three weeks later.

The driver of the vehicle, a 74-year-old man and his 71-year-old female passenger stopped at the scene.

The Jancourt East pair were un-injured.

Victorian Police will prepare a report for the Coroner.

Our sincere condolences to the rider’s family and friends.
