Crash leaves one motorcyclist dead, others injured on charity ride on Perth Highway


One motorcyclist has died and others have been injured this morning in an accident on the Mitchell highway in Perth.

Emergency crews were called to the intersection of Mitchell Highway and Whitford Avenue just before 10 p.m.

Motorcyclists are believed to be taking part in the 45th Perth Cyclists’ Charity Race, helping with the Salvation Army’s Christmas call.

The highway section north between Hepburn Avenue and the Ocean Reef Road is closed.

WA Police said the rider of the first motorcycle was killed when they crashed at about 1 p.m. 9.35.

“Two more motorcycles later crashed in the same place and both of these riders were taken to hospital,” the spokesman said.

The extent of their injuries is not yet known.

Still ahead.
