Man killed in horror road bike crash in southern NSW

A MAN has been killed in a horror road bike crash in southern NSW.

The accident happened on the Hume Highway near Sheehan Bridge, south of Gundagai, around 2.30pm yesterday.

Police said a white Toyota Corolla collided with a motorcycle, killing its male rider.


The driver of the Toyota, a 20-year-old woman, was not injured in the collision. She was taken to Gundagai Hospital for mandatory blood and urine analysis.

Investigations into the accident are continuing. Police are urging anyone with information to come forward.

The crash was the second fatal accident on regional roads in less than 12 hours, prompting senior police from the Traffic and Highway Patrol to remind road users of their responsibility on NSW roads.

Traffic and Highway Patrol Regional Commander, Superintendent Bob Ryan said that the loss of life on NSW roads is concerning.

“Today, we lost the lives two more people on country roads,” Supt Ryan said. “The loss of these two lives comes only days after announcing that eight people died on NSW roads in 48 hours.”

“I want the community to understand that every life lost on the road is more than a figure, it means that a family have lost a loved one.

“Police are out in force, committed to reducing the road toll, however, we can’t be everywhere all the time.

“We need drivers to take personal responsibility for their actions and arrive home safely.”
