Rider down in Sydney

Just saw on the news that a rider lost his leg in a crash in Sydney. Looked like an F4.
Really sad to hear. Anybody know anything more?

26 year old Perth, Western Australia man...

"...The motorbike is believed to have been traveling at a high-speed southbound on Bridge Street about 12.10am when it drove into the back of a taxi cab..."

"...The rider was thrown from the bike and suffered serious leg injuries..."

"...The man from Perth remains in a serious but stable condition in St Vincent's hospital..."

Definately an F4:

Maybe not the taxi driver's fault...this time..

Wishing the rider a quick recovery.

Not passing judgement as I wasn't there, but people really need to slow it down in the built up areas. Leave the speed for country roads or of course the track.

Question Any more news guys

Very sorry to see, hope the fella gets better soon, never nice to hear about something like this happening, and even worse this time of the year. Makes our little problems seem very trivial indeed.
Best wishes mate.
