Terrible, seems to be a run of this sort of thing at the moment. He was in the form of his life too, not that that matters now. Sad Hope he's ok.

That's what i was thinking TRO. Seems to have been quite a few of them recently. I think Frodo came off the other day as well, though i think that was just him slipping in the wet as opposed to a RTA.

Hope he recovers well.

Let's hope they track down the driver, and put him in a cell with Leroy.

I cannot understand how you can leave someone in the road and not help them, even if you were involved in the collision. Awful. Hope he can recover from this. Sad

If it was a road train/logging truck then these things are big. I cannot believe that the driver just left him there.
When I worked in NZ I was told to keep to the coastal/major roads as the minor/interior roads were rough and you had a higher chance of being hit by the trucks

The link said the truck pulled into the side of the road, then sped away. Whether that means it came to a stop, or it was just pulling-in after overtaking is not clear. It's not unusual for lorries to pull-in too early, causing riders to brake or take avoiding action.... I had to give a hand gesture to the left wing-mirror of a lorry this morning.

I believe that a truck driver has been brought in for questioning.

Also read that Terenzo is being treated for severe concussion, and head and facial injuries, hopefully he will make a full and speedy recovery
