A man has died following a motorcycle crash near Smiths Lake earlier today.
About 12.30pm Tuesday, a 73-year-old man was riding his KTM motorcycle south on the Lakes Way, between Smiths Lake and Bungwahl, as part of an organised ride.
Police from Manning/Great Lakes PD have been told that as the man attempted to negotiate a sweeping left-hand bend, his bike collided with a Toyota Hilux in the north bound lane.
Other motorcycle riders attempted to resuscitate the man, but he died at the scene.
The 45-year-old male Toyota driver was conveyed to Manning Hospital for mandatory blood and urine testing, while the motorcycle was seized for mechanical testing.
A report will be prepared for the information of the Coroner.
