Major Crash Investigators are seeking information on a fatal motorcycle crash that happened on Orestes Street near Jannli Way in San Remo overnight

About 9:20pm, Traffic Enforcement Group officers were on patrol in the San Remo and surrounding area when they observed a motorcycle that appeared to be speeding on Mandurah Road.

The officers attempted to stop the rider of the Harley Davidson motorcycle at the intersection of Britawast Road and Guillardon Terrace.

The rider failed to stop and accelerated away, and the attempt to stop the motorcycle was aborted.

A short time later the same officers stopped an unrelated vehicle on Orestes Street in San Remo.

Upon stopping the vehicle the officers located a motorcycle crashed into a wire fence at a residence on Orestes Street.

It was the same motorcycle that the officers had tried to stop several minutes earlier.

The attending officers provide emergency first aid to the rider, who is believed to be a man in his 40’s.

St John Ambulance attended and took the man to Peel Health Campus, where he died.
