ACT Policing is investigating a collision in Macquarie where a motorcycle rider has collided with a tree.
About 9am this morning police were conducting radar speed detection on Bindubi Street, Macquarie when a rider on a blue motorcycle drove past above the posted speed limit.
Police attempted a traffic stop on the motorcyclist, activating lights and siren for the rider to stop.
The rider accelerated away from police and a short time later has failed to negotiate a bend in the road on Redfern Street, crossing onto the opposite lane and colliding with a tree.
ACT Ambulance Service attended the scene and conveyed the man to The Canberra Hospital. The 32-year-old Dunlop man is reported to be in a stable condition.
Redfern Street will be closed between Elizabeth Street and Lachlan Street for the next few hours as ACT Policing’s Collision Investigation and Reconstruction Team investigate the circumstances surrounding the collision.
