I realise the previous thread has been closed. Just advising that the Gentleman has unfortunately passed away. Condolences to his family.
An 83 year old has been charged and unfortunately cannot remember the specifics of the charge but it included aggressive driving.
Just seen this too. Very sad news.
Very sad news :(
Will anyone organise a ghost bike? Does the bike co-op have a bike to spare? I do not know the location and if possible. Need something to lock the bike to and, as learnt on Payneham Road, need to also lock wheels to the bike. Some thieves desecrate memorials.
You might want to check with the family Heather. They might not want the reminder if they drive that way regularly. Or, of course, they might be happy with the memorial.
condolences to the family.
Not good at all - and makes me mad as hell. I ride along this bit of road often and in other parts of the Hills. Its always a concern with cars/trucks/horse floats heading into the shoulder.
Does anyone know the name of the deceased?
What a terrible thing. So sorry for him and his family.
According to the Advertiser:
The driver, a 83-year-old Nairne man, was reported by Major Crash Investigators for aggravated driving and driving without due care.
Another case in which A Metre Matters might have made the difference. A tragedy for all involved.
Condolences to the family.
