ACT Policing is seeking the help of the public after an incident last night (Saturday, April 13) in which a motorcyclist crashed on the Cotter Road.
He had been forced to take rapid evasive action to avoid a head-on collision with an oncoming vehicle.
Police were called to the crash location in Curtin about 7.20pm. The incident occurred about 200 metres west of the McCulloch Street intersection, within a roadworks speed-restricted zone.
The motorcyclist, a 34-year-old man from Weston, had been riding a black Honda eastbound on the Cotter Road when he was forced off the road to avoid an oncoming car travelling on the wrong side of the road directly toward him. He was unable to identify the type of vehicle involved.
The crash resulted in extensive, non life-threatening injuries to the rider, including multiple fractures. The driver of the car fled the scene and there were no apparent witnesses to the incident.
Police are urging anyone who may have seen or can identify a vehicle driving erratically in the Curtin area around the time of the incident and can assist with the investigation to contact CrimeStoppers on 1800 333 000 or via the website at act.crimestoppers.com.au.
