Rider down & out - Monash Fwy

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by Loz, Feb 24, 2006.

  1. A friend of my housemates, name of Mitch Van Ingell, probably about 19 and been riding a few months, came off somehow on the Monash at about 8pm and was run over by the car behind him. Died on the scene.

    Just wondering if anyone knows anything about this, or has any idea how you come off on the freeway?

    RIP :cry:
  2. RIP... I hate hearing about kids who die like this at such a young age. so sad :(
  3. Ahh damn, really not good to hear :( Sorry to hear that. RIP.
  4. That's terrible.......i hope it wasn't a tailgater that took him out

  5. I've got no idea how you can just drop it on the Monash, it's so long and straight... Unless he got merged into, or got caught on a headcheck like happened to someone else this morning... Or maybe a lane split gone wrong, but at 8pm there's hardly a lot of splitting to do...

    Wonder what happened...
  6. Bloody hell.. not another one dude :cry:

    So young as well.. Waste of a life..

    Yeh Loz, if it wasent anything mechanical, the only thing I can
    think of hes maybe come into grief when changing lanes or
