Share Canberra's trusted news:

A 43-year-old man from Pearce has died tonight following a collision in Red Hill.

About 8.20pm he was driving on his motorcycle heading north along La Perouse Street, when he collided with a white Hyundai i30 travelling in the opposite direction.

ACT Policing General Duties were first to attend the scene within moments and commenced CPR.

ACT Fire and Rescue and ACT Ambulance arrived shortly after and continued the resuscitation effort but the man died at the scene.

The 19-year-old driver of the white Hyundai is shaken but uninjured and assisting police with their enquiries.

ACT Policing’s Collision Investigation and Reconstruction Team are investigating the incident and will prepare a report for the Coroner.

This is the 10th person to have died on ACT Roads this year.
