Was driving in my cage today down Karinyup road when i saw a 2 car and 1 rider crash. It was around the Gwellup area.

The bikes main frame looked totally twisted. I didn't see the rider but i assume he would be in hospital by now.

Hope he is ok and it was no one from here.

Has the govt put a bounty on our heads or something?

Hope the riders ok.

As reported by a guy that lives on Karrinyup Rd from a car forum I am on. Not sure if it is the same guy or not.

"I had just pulled into my garage this afternoon and as is quite often the case, the sound of sweet engine caught my ear. I turned around to check it out (as I always do) to see a sweet looking yellow &#39;naked&#39; bike heading away from the beach.
First thing I noticed was that the rider was wearing shorts and a singlet, and the first thing that popped in to my mind was: "Careful, mate. Your family loves you and would hate to see you get hurt." (Funny how being a Dad makes you think of these things...)
A few seconds later I hear a bang. Thought to myself, that sounded weird, couldn&#39;t have been that motorbike hitting something... could it?

I didn&#39;t hear any tyre screech, and didn&#39;t bother to check. About 10 seconds later I thought I&#39;d better check, just in case. Walked out to the road and looked down the hill. Sure enough, there was a bunch of people standing around.

The motorcyclist was going a little fast coming up the hill, but as he got to my place he definitely buttoned off and was practically coasting down the hill. I didn&#39;t hear him accelerate after that and who knows whether the sun was in the other driver&#39;s eyes, either way, a LOT of people will be having a pretty shitty Christmas.

I had Luka with me, and thought about heading down there with my First Aid kit, but it just didn&#39;t seem right to go down there with a baby.
Accident was on the corner of Karrinyup Road and Arnott St around 5pm today.

I sincerely hope nobody was hurt too seriously, but I have my doubts about how the motorcyclist would have fared. Ambulance arrived pretty quickly, but I&#39;m not sure on any other details.

So, my point... Be careful out there people. Keep your wits about you, take it easy, don&#39;t drink too much and keep your eyes out for motorcyclists. Not just for Christmas, but 365 days a year.

Be safe and have a Merry Christmas everybody."

cheers

And this from a cage driver, so good to see there are drivers out there (apart from us in our cages and our family) that think like this, wish more did.
