Sydney motorcycle dealer Peter Raymond Robinson, 59, has died in Bali when a truck ran through a red light and hit his scooter on Friday (7 June 2019).
Bali police have arrested the truck driver, 24-year-old Dicky Agung Wijaksana.
Graphic CCTV footage of the crash was posted on Instagram showing Peter’s head being run over by the truck’s rear wheel. We have chosen not to publish the video.
One Aussie tourist dies every nine days on the popular Indonesian tourist island.
In the past three months, three Australians have been killed in scooter crashes.
In April, Queensland father Erran Braddick, 32, died after being hit by a truck in Canggu, north of Seminyak, and in March Frankie Avalon Fonohema, 27, of Melbourne died after a scooter crash with a motorcycle, also in Canggu.
Our sincere condolences to their families and friends.
Many Aussies holiday in Bali and many hire scooters and motorcycles to tour the island.
