A motorcycle rider who slid across four lanes of Goulburn Valley Hwy has been described as ‘‘extremely lucky’’.
Shepparton Highway Patrol Leading Senior Constable Mick Jarrett said the rider was travelling north on Verney Rd about 9.35
‘‘For whatever reason he has failed to stop as he approached the T-intersection with the Goulburn Valley Hwy and has hit the concrete median,’’ Sen Const Jarrett said.
The bike and rider slid across the highway, which at that point has four lanes to accommodate turning traffic.
‘‘He was really fortunate there wasn’t another vehicle coming along, he’s a very lucky man,’’ Sen Const Jarrett said.
The rider, a 48 year-old man from Kaarimba, was already sporting a plaster cast on his lower leg from recent surgery and ended up back in hospital after being treated by ambulance paramedics at the scene.
Sen Const Jarrett said the investigation into the crash was continuing.
