A young Perth motorcyclist has died after colliding with a car. The 15 year-old rider – too young to hold a license – was riding an unlicensed and lightless off-road bike when he crashed into the car around sunset.
Tributes are flowing for the deceased but police are less than happy with the circumstances:
Det-Const. Outred said the dirt bike was unregistered and should not have been on the road.He said Cotswold Parade was controlled by give-way signs and there were skid marks on the road but experts were yet to examine them.
“It’s illegal for anyone to ride any unregistered vehicle on a public road,” Det-Const. Outred said.
“We wouldn’t expect a crash of this nature, involving an unregistered trail bike, to occur on suburban roads.”
The driver of the car wouldn’t have expected it either.
