Wire Trap Injures Rider near Pinjar

24-Feb-2016

Riders should be alert to the possibility of man-traps in Mariginiup near Pinjar following the serious injury to a 16 year old rider on Tuesday 23 February.

According to a report in PerthNow, the injury occurred as he rode down the fire track on the southern side of a property next to a strawberry farm. He hit a metal wire which had been deliberately placed from one side of the track to the strawberry farm fence on the other side.

The rider suffered serious injuries and was taken to Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital. It is believed he may have fractured two vertebrae in his neck.

Our information is that he was on private property with the owner's consent at the time.

Please note that this incident did not occur within the Pinjar Motorcycle Area.  We are endeavouring to obtain more precise details of the location.
