Saw a nasty accident this morning which could have been much much worse. Corner Foster St & Lonsdale St, Dandenong at 7.50am. There are 2 lanes to turn left onto Lonsdale St (Princess Hwy), I am in the right turning lane behind a truck with two trailers attached. In the left lane is a motorcycle. We are all waiting to turn left, but have a red left arrow and are just waiting for that. However, the truck driver didn’t want to wait anymore and started turning against the red arrow. But instead of staying in his lane, he cut across the left lane where the motorcycle is still stationary (we still have the red arrow). At this stage the rider beeped his horn, but the truck kept going and the wheels on one of the trailers started running over the bike. The rider somehow got out of the way of the wheels and landed on the nature strip. If he had hesitated for a few more seconds, he would have been under the wheels as well. As soon as this happened, I blocked off that lane with my car and jumped out to see if he was hurt. Apart from mild shock and a sh!tload of adrenaline going through him, he said he was ok. I then helped him move the bike as peak hour traffic was starting to bank up. By this stage the truck drive came over and stated the usual “Sorry Mate I Didn’t See You”. I then called 000 (about 8am) and then after 50 questions, the stated that cops should be there shortly ( Dandenong Police Station is about 150 meters from accident site). At 8.30am, called again, went through the same questions and was told Police on the way. At 9am, the rider called 000 and the Police stated, because no one was hurt, there has been no violence etc, etc. ect, they would not be arriving. By now the rider who worked just up the road at a motorcycle dealership called on e of the guys who came over and we put the bike in the ute. Gave him my business card and am more than happy to be his witness. It just goes to show you that no matter how careful you are, sh!t can happen and a few seconds of hesitation could mean the difference between life and death.
