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.
