A vehicle and motorbike have collided close to Spotts Beach on Shamrock Road. As a result, the driver can expect traffic delays and should take the Newlands Bypass if possible.
We understand the bike driver was face down on the ground after being thrown some distance from the bike and is facing serious life-threatening injuries.
This is a developing story and once more information is available we will update this post.
UPDATE: 7:00 pm
It was a fatal bike accident and the male bike driver was dead on arrival at the hospital. The road will be closed overnight. For everyone living in the eastern districts, traffic delays can be expected.
