WITNESS APPEAL

Me again Damien! 

ABC local radio actually reported this as 'car collided with motorcycle' which would seem most likely scenario, given motorcycle would've had right of way on major Centre Rd.  Interesting how Police report states opposite, (my bolding below), but have arrested the driver anyway? Would that be only because the rider has now died?  It's in Bernie's neck of the woods; have cc'd in case he has any local knowledge ie intersection type, road conditions, any history/reputation for crashes, etc.
