Townsville Bulletin - - Front Page -

A MO­TOR­CY­CLE ended up stuck un­der a 4WD af­ter the ve­hi­cles col­lided in the Castle­town Shop­ping­world car park yes­ter­day.

The mo­tor­cy­clist, aged in his late 30s, was knocked from the bike but es­caped with only mi­nor in­juries.

The ac­ci­dent hap­pened about 5.35pm in front of the Wool­worths ser­vice sta­tion car park.

It ap­peared the mo­tor­bike was leav­ing the un­der­ground carpark when the ve­hi­cles col­lided.

The 4WD’s front tyre had to be jacked to re­trieve the brand new Ya­hama mo­tor­bike from un­der­neath the car’s front wheels.

A Queens­land Fire and Res­cue spokes­woman said fuel had been re­ported to be leak­ing from the bike, but on ar­rival none was de­tected.
