Rider killed, another injured in two crashes


A male rider has died after hitting a guard rail and another rider has been injured after being hit by a truck in seperate crashes in South East Queensland yesterday afternoon.

Police say a man died at the scene of a crash at Yandina about 2.30pm.

He was riding south on the Bruce Highway when he hit a guard rail and was flung from the motorcycle.

They say no more details are available as they are having trouble contacting the next of kin.

Forensic Crash Unit are investigating.

Our condolences to the man’s family and friends.

Second crash

In the other incident, police are investigating a three-vehicle-crash which occurred in Jindalee at 2.15pm (photo top of page).

The rider was heading south on the Centenary Highway when he ran into the back of a car that had merged on to the highway, an eyewitness tells us.

“The impact threw the motorcyclist to the ground where he was struck by a passing struck,” police say.

The 21-year-old male rider from Boronia Heights was transported to hospital with serious leg and back injuries. Our best wishes for a speedy recovery.

The 18-year-old female driver of the car from Chelmer and the 55-year-old male truck driver from Leichardt were not injured.

The Forensic Crash Unit is investigating the crash.
