ACT Policing is investigating a collision in Fadden in which a male rider has died.

About 6pm last night (Tuesday, May 5), police responded to a report that a motorcyclist on Erindale Drive, near the intersection with Sulwood Drive, had collided into the back of a car as they were both travelling south.

The 33-year-old rider, Raymond Glynn BERTRAM, was taken to The Canberra Hospital with significant injuries and died this morning.

ACT Policing’s Collision Investigation and Reconstruction Team are examining the circumstances surrounding the collision. A report will be prepared for the Coroner.

This is the fifth fatality on Canberra’s roads this year and the fourth involving a vulnerable road user. ACT Policing wish to remind Canberra drivers and riders, this is National Road Safety Week and road safety is everyone’s responsibility.
