A 37-year-old Ducati rider has died overnight in hospital after a collision with a Subaru Outback in Sydney’s Inner West just after 5pm yesterday (20 June 2019).
Police say the motorcycle and station wagon collided at the intersection of Old Canterbury Road and Dixson Avenue, Dulwich Hill.
The male motorcyclist was treated at the scene by NSW Ambulance paramedics before being taken to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, where he later passed away.
Our condolences to his family and friends.
The 44-year-old female driver of the Subaru station wagon was uninjured and taken to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital for mandatory testing.
Officers from Inner West Police Area Command attended and established a crime scene, which will be examined by specialist police from the Crash Investigation Unit.
A report will be prepared for the information of the Coroner. That is expected to take some time, so no charges may be laid until the coroner’s report is finalised.
