Motorcyclist dies on Monaro Highway at Cooma

Ian Campbell 30 October 2018

A 62-year-old motorcyclist has died on the Monaro Highway at Cooma this morning (October 30).

Emergency services were called to the single-vehicle accident at around 10:40 am. Tragically, the male rider died at the scene.

The accident comes amidst a large volume of motorbike traffic moving through the region returning home from the Australian Moto Grand Prix at Phillip Island.

The route through the Snowy Mountains via Cooma and Bombala or along the coast via Batemans Bay, Narooma, and Eden has become somewhat of a pilgrimage for fans.

And sadly the news comes just days before the annual Snowy Ride takes over the region raising money for the Steven Walter Children’s Cancer Foundation.

Officers from Monaro Police District are investigating the circumstances surrounding this morning’s crash and will prepare a report for the Coroner.
