Motorcyclist is killed in Sydney police chase

A young motorcyclist has been killed during a police chase.

New South Wales Police launched a critical incident investigation following the fatal crash in Sydney’s west about 2.30pm on Monday.

Police allege an officer from the Traffic and Highway Patrol unit attempted to stop a motorcycle on Arthur Street in Strathfield.

However, because the driver did not stop, the police gave chase.

In the first few minutes of the chase, the motorcyclist – a man believed to be in his 20s – rammed the side of a Toyota Corolla as he tried to overtake it.

The impact caused him to lose control of his bicycle and crash into an electricity pole in front of a children’s center.

‘Officers treated the male rider – believed to be in his twenties – until the arrival of paramedics. However, he died at the scene,” NSW Police said in a statement.

The man will not be formally identified until his next of kin have been informed of the incident.

Officers established a crime scene, with Arthur Street closed in both directions between Henley Street and Hornsey Road.

Motorists have been advised to avoid the area.

A Bankstown Police Area Command Critical Incident Investigation Team will analyze the crash and its findings will be subject to an independent review.

The news comes just three days after another motorcyclist crashed during a chase by Sydney police.
