Unhappy accident

Was told about this today.
And found this news clipping on the net.
Dont have any more infomation.
RIP.....

A motorcyclist was killed and two other people were injured in a highway crash in Melbourneís south-east last night.

Police said the male rider, believed to be in his 20s, was killed instantly when his motorcycle collided with a car that was attempting to perform a U-turn on the Nepean Highway in Highett about 9.20pm.

A Victoria Police spokesman said the motorcyclist was riding his MV Agusta bike south on the highway when it collided with a Honda CRV that had been travelling north but was was completing a U-turn at Turner Road.

The crash pushed the car, carrying a man and woman believed to be aged in their 60s, onto its side.

The couple were taken to The Alfred hospital with minor injuries and the Nepean Highway was closed for several hours while police investigated the crash scene.

That is terrible.

You def have to ride like everyone is out to kill you because, between the women in the SUVs and the elderly, they pretty much are.

Possible but perhaps not. CRV's, by design, carry their weight high. I think it's entirely possible that the turning CRV, especially if it was making a rapid u-turn, could be tipped over by a motorcycle / rider at speeds round 100 kph.
Tragic loss, regardless. Rest in peace.

It ain't what you ride, it's the way you ride it.

Its probably a perfect storm. They were on a motorway (aka realitively high but legal speeds) in what is basically a lifted car (not the most stable) and making a u-turn that was already probably causing the car to lean hard away from the rider.
