    Riders down

    Cnr Orrong and Francisco at the lights.

    One up and about but one getting seen to by ambo's, conscious but seriously big air and probable leg damage.

    Ducati and unknown.

    I wonder whether they were splitting up to lights or someone cut one of them off ,quite a dangerous stretch of rd that between gt eastern hwy and oats street lights ,there have been many crashes there for as long as i can remember over the last 40 years.
    Mate stick to the facts not a fantasy.

    I rarely split on Orrong Road (either direction).

    Just not worth it....people turning left.....but think they're driving a triple road train, and have to veer right before finally taking the left turn. Numpties who do their very best to squeeze that gap from you.

    Fuck that.

    Hope riders are ok.

    Second hand report from a work colleague/witness, first on scene to assist, was apparently a standard car turning right in front of oncoming traffic.

    Pretty common at this intersection but not enough deaths to warrant action.

    Hi PSB,

    Turns out this was a close family friend of ours, a bloke my old man used to work with years ago. As chew said, car turned right across him, nowhere to go. He got his leg jammed between the bike and car while the rest of him kept going. Leg is pretty bad, 50/50 whether or not they can save it. Foot is like a bag of confetti and the leg is pretty much filleted from knee down and not much skin left to work with. Long road ahead.

    i feel for him.. best wishes on a full recovery

    you don't realise how nasty the front of a car can be when it smacks into your leg, i only had a small car park bender with one at low speed and that sucked

    fuck me what a mental image. can only imagine what it actually looks like.

    hope he regains as much usability as possible and heals well.

    I'll let the bloke at work know, he was quite horrified by it and was one of the first two to reach him on the deck.

    Cheers to your colleague for his help, chew

    Best wishes to the rider and first responders.
    Good luck to your young friend Roy.
    Not much more to say on a forum.
