Police search for red car over fatal bike crash

Police have released a video of a red car wanted in connection with a motorcycle crash in Capalaba, Brisbane, yesterday afternoon (Monday 16 September 2019) that claimed the life of a Birkdale man.

Queensland Police say their preliminary investigations indicate the Harley-Davidson Sportster was heading west on Finucane Road around 3.40pm when “he lost control of his motorbike near Elmhurst Street”.

Anthony Waters, 31, was pronounced deceased at the scene.

However, they have now released a video of a red VT or VX Holden Commodore wanted in connection with the incident.

At this stage, no one has been charged, but this new video seems to suggest the rider may not have “lost control”.

The car may have been involved.

Police investigators have been working to identify motorists in the area at the time.

While they have identified some of the vehicles, they have released this dashcam footage of the red sedan that they believe is a Holden Commodore.

Police say they would “like to speak with the driver as they may have relevant information”.

Forensic Crash Unit investigators are appealing for any witnesses who have not yet contacted them or anyone who may have additional dash cam vision to contact them.
