Man dies after motorcycle crash - Silverton

Wednesday, 11 March 2015 11:11:08 AM

Police will prepare a report for the Coroner after the death of a man riding a motorcycle at Silverton yesterday.

About 7.15pm yesterday (Tuesday 11 March 2015) a 27-year-old man was riding a Honda motorcycle on the Silverton Road towards the Mundi Mundi lookout.

As the rider passed over the crest of a hill he collided with a Mack prime mover being driven by a 50-year-old man.

The rider, who is believed to be a US national, was thrown some distance by the impact and appears to have died immediately.

Emergency services were contacted and police from Barrier Local Area Command attended.

The officers established a crime scene and spoke with several witnesses to the crash.

Both vehicles have been seized for further forensic examination and inquiries into the incident continue.

Investigators believe that film fans were in the area attempting to recreate scenes from a movie (Mad Max).

Police will prepare a report for the Coroner outlining the full circumstances of the man’s death.

Maybe the driver of the mack was a little tired of the mad max maniacs and decided to recreate a bit of drama himself. If he did then give him a medal.

If a US citizen, perhaps he was on the wrong side of the road?

There's no winners in a story like this but if they were trying to re-enact a movie scene I am reminded of a recently picked up quote.....

"When you are dead you don't know you are dead, it is only hard for the others. It's the same when you're stupid"  Exclamation
