A CYCLIST was reportedly in a “critical” condition after being knocked off his bike by a car about noon Wednesday, on Nepean Hwy, Safety Beach.
The boy, 17, of Mt Martha, was airlifted to The Alfred hospital.
The collision occurred near the intersection of Ponderosa Pl. The driver of the car, a man aged 46, immediately stopped to help. Conditions were fine.
Senior Constable Steve Caple, of Frankston highway patrol, said police were appealing for witnesses to the incident. “The worst thing for a policeman is to see a boy on the road,” he said. “You never get used to it.”
