Doctor will be missed
“We’re very saddened by the news and he will be deeply missed,” Mr Grime said.
Dr Dale came to Bunbury in 1984 and was WA’s first specialist anaesthetist outside of the metropolitan area.
Major crash investigators are trying to piece together exactly what happened leading up to the tragic incident.
The driver of the car – a woman who was understood to be taking her daughter to school – was in so much shock, she had to be taken to hospital.
The latest fatality has prompted renewed calls from South West District Police Supt Mick Sutherland who told the Times that while accidents happened, it was crucial care was taken more than ever in the lead up to Christmas.
“That’s another person missing from the table this Christmas and we just need the message to get through – for all road users,” Supt Sutherland said.
Police are calling for anyone who saw the green 2003 Toyota Camry sedan which was travelling southbound or the group of cyclists prior to the crash to contact them.
