Motorbike rider in hospital after crash


A Queenstown motorbike rider is in hospital after being struck by a car on Shotover Street this morning.

Jenna Evans, 29, was turning her Honda motorbike from Camp St when she was struck by an Apex Rental car at the Shotover St roundabout about 8.50am.

The driver of the vehicle “failed to either see her but clearly failed to give way to her,” acting sergeant Jason Reid suspects.

The motorbike was pinned underneath the car and dragged a couple of metres.

Evans is believed to have sustained leg injuries.
