Cyclist killed


THE cause of a collision causing the death of a cyclist in Moorooduc, Monday 11 June, was still to be determined late last week.

The 61-year-old father of adult children from Frankston South, was hit by a garbage truck on Moorooduc Highway, near Bungower Road, about 10.40am.

Police attended and later interviewed the truck driver, 53, of Noble Park, at Frankston Police Station.

Acting senior sergeant Pat Hayes, of Frankston police, said, Thursday 14 June, that “no cause of death has been ascertained at this point and no charges laid”.

He said a pair of headphones found at the scene would form part of the investigation.

The stretch of the Moorooduc Highway where the cyclist died was considered semi-rural, although it was a “busy stretch of road”, he said.

Northbound lanes on Moorooduc Highway remained closed between Tyabb and Bungower roads that evening.

Anyone who saw the collision is urged to contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report at
