Motorcyclist dies at Tyalgum

A motorcyclist has died following a single vehicle crash on the state’s Far North Coast earlier this week.

About 12.45pm on Tuesday 15 October 2019, a 69-year-old male motorcycle rider was travelling south on Limpinwood Road, Tyalgum.

It’s understood the rider lost control before leaving the road and colliding with a tree.

Emergency services arrived at the scene a short time later and rendered CPR, before he was taken to Gold Coast University Hospital in a critical condition.

Last night (Wednesday 16 October 2019), the man died of his injuries at hospital.

A report will be prepared for the information of the Coroner.

Tweed/Byron Police District Duty Officer, Detective Chief Inspector Matt Kehoe is urging riders to take care on the roads, and ride to the conditions and your experience level.

“In the last week, two motorcyclists have died on Tweed/Byron roads, with another rider remaining in hospital.

“These vehicles are high-powered and can be fatal. Please ride with caution, stick to the speed limit and monitor your conditions,” Det Ch Insp Kehoe said.
