Narooma area police report: April 16

Bike accident

THE Bermagui woman airlifted to The Canberra Hospital by the Snowy Hydro Southcare chopper after her bike collided with a car on Tuesday afternoon is back home after several days in hospital.

Members of the Bermagui chapter of the Cancer Research Advocate Bikers (CRABS) at the scene have implored all drivers to be bike aware and always be on the lookout for motorcycles.

The 53-year-old woman was riding her Honda road bike alone south on Wallaga Lake Road just before 4pm when she collided with a car being driven by another local.

The car was pulling out of Bermagui Cobargo Road when the collision occurred, which was strong enough to break windows in the car.

CRABS members on scene to recover the bike said accidents had occurred at the intersection before and said bike awareness for car drivers was important at all times.

They said she suffered two broken ribs, and an injured finger required an operation.

Police investigations continue.
