Motorcyclist killed in truck collision

NSW Police are at the scene of a fatal collision between a motorcycle and a truck in McGraths Hill in Sydney’s north-west.

About 12.35pm (Tuesday 22 October 2019), police attended the intersection of Windsor Road and Pitt Town Road following reports of a collision between a motorcyclist and a truck.

“The male rider was thrown from the bike and suffered serious injuries,” NSW Police say.

“The man was treated at the scene, however died.

“The driver of the truck was not injured and has been taken to Hawkesbury Hospital for mandatory testing.

“A crime scene has been established and the circumstances surrounding the collision are being investigated.”

Windsor Road is closed in both directions and local diversions are in place. Motorists are advised to avoid the area.

A brief will be prepared for the information of the Coroner.

Our sincere condolences to the rider’s family and friends.

It follows four tragic days for motorcyclists in NSW with four riders killed, and five riders and a pillion injured in six separate motorcycle crashes.

 

  1. I was almost got by a truck doing a very wide sudden turn from the centre of a three lane road. I knew better but he looked to be going straight as he was well in the centre lane and I could not see any indicators flashing until I was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
    Either the driver suddenly discovered he had to turn or his trailer lights didn’t work and he was going extra wide to avoid the plastic construction barriers that took up part of the dedicated turn off and its approach.
    I ended up pushing into on of those barriers to miss being squished by barely a hair.
    Moral of the story is stay clear of trucks near intersections and everywhere else for that matter.
