A TEENAGER’S two motorcycle buddies did not stop to help him when he crashed an off-road bike into the back of a car on a public road and suffered serious head injuries in Alexander Heights on Thursday.

He was with two others riding similar machines when he crashed into the rear of a Ford Territory travelling in the same direction. The car stopped at the scene and the other two motorcycles continued riding west along Marangaroo Drive. The boy was taken to Royal Perth Hospital. Anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers.
