Driver allegedly runs red light, hits rider and flees
The recent spate of hit-and-run accidents involving motorcyclists continues with an SUV driver charged after allegedly running a red light and hitting a rider in north-west Sydney last week.
Police say a Nissan utility was travelling south on Windsor Road, Rouse Hill, about 9.30pm last Thursday (12 September 2019) when it approached the intersection of Schofields Road and was faced with a red right turn arrow.
Allegedly disobeyed red light
“The driver allegedly turned right against the red arrow and struck a motorcycle which was being ridden north through the intersection,” police say.
The motorcyclist, a 63-year-old man, suffered multiple compound fractures to his right leg and fractured ribs.
Our sincere best wishes for a full and speedy recovery.
Police allege the driver of the Nissan did not stop after the crash.
On Friday, Metropolitan Crash Investigation Unit officers arrested a 26-year-old man when he attended Blacktown Police Station.
