Mother hit by teens on mini motorcycles dies

A Melbourne mother who was allegedly run down in a shopping centre car park has died in hospital.

The family of Andrea Lehane donated her organs and switched off her life support today after she suffered “unsurvivable” brain damage.

The mother-of-two sustained critical head injuries when youths riding motorcycles known as “monkey bikes” allegedly knocked her down on Wednesday on a pedestrian crossing at a shopping centre car park.


A 17-year-old boy has been charged with reckless conduct endangering life, reckless conduct endangering persons, unlicensed riding and having an unregistered vehicle.

He was bailed to appear at the Children’s Court at a later date.

Police expect to charge a 16-year-old boy with similar charges, while a 15-year-old  boy is also in custody.
