Rider killed

The Cobram Courier - - NEWS -

A Boro­nia man, 28, died when the mo­tor­cy­cle he was rid­ing col­lided with a tree at Tocumwal on De­cem­ber 8.

Po­lice said the man was rid­ing the un­reg­is­tered bike through the Mur­ray Val­ley Na­tional Park at Tocumwal about 3.20 pm, when it is be­lieved he lost con­trol on a dirt road.

Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing whether speed was a fac­tor in the crash.

Emer­gency ser­vices were called and at­tempted CPR.

Mur­ray River Po­lice Dis­trict De­tec­tive In­spec­tor Jy Brown said the news was dev­as­tat­ing so close to the Christ­mas pe­riod and urged ev­ery­one to take ex­tra care on the roads.

‘‘Po­lice are re­mind­ing all driv­ers to be aware of their sur­round­ings — don’t speed, don’t drink and drive and please obey road rules,’’ Det Insp Brown said.

‘‘Po­lice will be in force over the sum­mer pe­riod to main­tain safety and con­duct traf­fic en­force­ment op­er­a­tions.

‘‘Any­one who wit­nesses poor driv­ing be­hav­iour is urged to re­port it to po­lice.’’
