A motorcyclist has died following a crash in the Launceston CBD overnight.

About 12:40am, a 28-year-old man from Kings Meadows was travelling south on Wellington Street, Launceston, on a black Kawasaki motorcycle.

He collided with a silver Suzuki hatch which was travelling east on Paterson Street, Launceston, driven by a 25-year-old man from Mowbray.

First aid was rendered to the motorcyclist, but he sadly died at the scene of the crash.

The driver of the Suzuki was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. His two passengers were not physically injured.

The scene was examined by Crash Investigation Services and Forensic Services. The intersection was partially closed for some time and police would like to thank road users for their patience and cooperation.

Initial investigations indicate the motorcycle rider was travelling in excess of the speed limit, and may have disobeyed a red light. Alcohol may have been a contributing factor to the crash.

Police are asking anyone who saw the motorcycle travelling in the Launceston CBD prior to the crash to contact Northern Crash Investigation Services on 131 444.

SA Police Commissioner, Grant Stevens and CFS Director of Operational Capability and Planning, Tammy Moffat were out today showing their support for the Emergency Services Blood Challenge!

Each year, hundreds of SA Police staff across the state donate blood to the Red Cross. The Emergency Services Challenge is a great initiative to encourage more staff to donate!

Currently, SAPOL are sitting at first place for number of donations with 418 recorded so far. The SA Country Fire Service is coming in second with 196. And in third place sit the SA Metropolitan Fire Service with 158. A great effort by all but there’s still time to participate in the challenge and donate. If you’d like to contribute to the challenge, you’ve got until 31 August.

Even if you’re not taking part in the challenge, please consider making a donation. Every drop counts, especially during these times of COVID-19 when it’s even more important.

While it can be uncomfortable for some, each donation is saving lives across South Australia.
