If I remember correctly if someone is injured on the "open road" whether it be ped, cyclist, motorcyclist, vehicle driver. A report MUST be made to the Police. (Please correct if I am mistaken)
And this, I think, is how Vicroads & Local Councils determine how to spend their budget on road safety. (Happy to be corrected)
I would also like to hear how this poor rider is getting on.
But having said that I have witnessed/heard of other accidents/incidents that never made it to the press so with only this one eyewitness report I don't think we will hear too much more about this event.
Remember ride safe, ride well & ride often.
Enough of this forum nonsense. I'm going riding!!
