A Yellow Rock motorcyclist is in a critical condition in Westmead Hospital after hitting a car on Monday night.
Joe Woods, a concreter, aged in his mid-50s, was riding his motorbike at the intersection between Hawkesbury and Lee roads at Winmalee about 6.30pm when he collided with a car.
Mr Woods became airborne, hit the windscreen of that car and, according to police, then landed “some distance onto the roadway”. He has a fractured arm and serious injury to his legs.
Off duty firefighters driving past assisted the injured man and alerted other emergency services. He was driven to Westmead by ambulance.
Springwood police (4751 0299) have asked witnesses to come forward.
There was no word on the car driver’s condition at the time of going to press on Tuesday.
