Learner Rider Dead Following Tumbi Road Crash

A learner rider has died after being injured in a serious motorcycle crash at Tumbi Umbi over the weekend.

About 12.15pm (Saturday 6 May 2017), a 45-year-old woman was riding her motorcycle south along Tumbi Umbi Road when she attempted to turn left into Bellevue Road.

The rider hit a median strip throwing her and the bike into a stationary car at the intersection. The woman fell from the bike and was trapped under another car.

A number of people assisted until arrival of emergency services. The woman was airlifted to Royal North Shore Hospital with serious head injuries; however, died in hospital yesterday (Monday 8 May 2017).

A brief will be prepared for the information of the Coroner.

7 people have now died on Central Coast roads in 2017.
