Motorcyclist feared dead after crash
A MAN is feared dead after a motorbike crash in Brisbane on Wednesday evening.
Emergency services were called to the corner of Northgate Rd and Peary St in Northgate just before 5pm, where a rider was treated by paramedics for critical injuries on scene.
It was believed the motorcycle collided with a car, a police spokesman said.
The accident came only hours after an 84-year-old man died in a crash on the Gold Coast.
