Man taken to hospital with broken leg following motorbike crash in White Hills
A man has been taken to hospital after his motorbike hit the tray of a ute in White Hills this afternoon.
Emergency services attended the scene at the intersection of Napier and Hamelin streets just before 4pm.
Senior Constable Levina Bell confirmed the 58-year-old was in the right-hand lane riding towards Epsom when he swerved into the back of the stationary vehicle.
"We're not sure if he wasn't concentrating or the exact circumstances, but he has swerved and clipped the back of the tray," she said.
The man sustained serious leg injuries and was taken to Bendigo hospital in an ambulance.
Police worked to direct traffic as CFA crews cleaned the road.
Senior Constable reminded drivers to remain vigilant, especially now school has gone back.
"It's so important people stay alert, especially this time of the afternoon when there is so much traffic on the road," she said.
