WA Police: three motorcyclists seriously injured in separate crashes in two days

A GRIM coincidence for local motorcyclists had three riders severely injured in separate road crashes over two days last week.

In a further coincidence, the crashes happened the same week of the launch of the Road Safety Commission’s Motorcycle Safety Week, which begins tomorrow.

Police said the first happened in Tapping on Wednesday, when a 25-year-old Harley Davidson rider crashed into the back of a beige Toyota Camry that was turning right onto Veronese Pass off Ashley Road about 6.55pm.

The male rider was treated in Royal Perth Hospital for serious injuries after being thrown from the motorcycle.

The female Toyota driver was uninjured.

On Thursday, police said another Harley Davidson rider was badly injured when he lost control of a motorcycle before striking a metal letterbox and crashing into a parked Toyota Rav 4 on Waterford Drive in Hillarys about 3.05pm.

The 41-year-old man was treated in Royal Perth Hospital.

Later that day, a teenager riding an allegedly unregistered trail bike crashed into the back of a grey Mazda on a roundabout at Nicholas Road and Chatsworth Drive in Hocking about 6.15pm.

The 17-year-old boy was taken to Joondalup Health Campus before being transferred to Royal Perth Hospital.

The 38-year-old woman driving the car was uninjured.

Police are seeking witnesses to the three crashes or anyone who saw the vehicles prior to them.
