Cyclist struck by car in Brighton

A 28-year-old cyclist has been seriously injured after being struck by a car in Brighton on one of Melbourne’s busiest cycling routes.

The woman was struck at the corner of Dendy Street and The Esplanade, Brighton.

A triple-0 call was made at 2.46pm on Saturday saying a cyclist had been injured in a collision with a car.

She was treated at the scene before being taken to The Alfred hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

The driver of the car, a 51-year-old Frankston woman, is assisting police with their enquiries. Police expect to charge her with changing lanes when unsafe to do so.

One witness said it looked like the car had initially failed to stop after the accident.

“There was a guy running northbound chasing a car yelling at it telling it to stop. That car pulled over, and as we continued another 20 metres we saw the cyclist on her back in agony.

“It seemed more like [the driver] did not know she’d done it, because once the guy flagged her down she stopped. Once she saw what had happened she ran right over.

“She was actually sitting next to the victim and she was crying.”

Glen Pearsall, the president of Cycling Victoria, said the route was a “mecca” for Melbourne’s cyclists.

“It’s a flat, relatively safe ride and it offers different distances – some people ride from the city down to black rock or Mordialloc or Frankston, or do longer rides right down to the peninsula.”

Safety on the road has been improved in recent years, with cars banned from parking along stretches of it over the weekend to reduce the risk of crashes. Generally, Mr Pearsall said, the route was quite safe for cyclists.

Between 2007 and 2012 there were 216 reported bicycle injuries in the strip, the most of any route in the state in that timeframe, an investigation by Fairfax Media at the time revealed.

The 19-kilometre coastal strip plays host to the notorious ‘Hell Ride’, with tens of thousands of riders zipping along the route each weekend.

Earlier this month a cyclist was taken to hospital with a fractured skull after she collided with other cyclists at high speed while they were racing along the route.

Monitoring CCTV over Manningham parks is ‘impossible’, says mayor in wake of Masa Vukotic killing

The mayor of Manningham has said it would be “impossible” to monitor the hundreds of parks and reserves in the area following the alleged murder of teen Masa Vukotic in Doncaster.

The 17-year-old was stabbed while going for a walk on Tuesday evening just 500 metres from her home. Sean Price, 31, was charged with murder after handing himself in on Thursday.

Mayor Paul McLeish said there were 313 open spaces in the Manningham Council area, and while the council is “always considering the safety of our citizens”, it would be difficult to install CCTV surveillance.

“It’s a significant open space network [and] it’s impossible to monitor the entire network,” he said.

The community in Doncaster and neighbouring suburbs is reeling from the random, brutal attack on Masa. A memorial has been set up at the site of her death, the Koonung Creek Linear Reserve.

Cr McLeish said it was the responsibility of governments and individuals to improve community attitudes towards the safety of women.

“Our job is to come together and support each other and prevent violence in our community by changing community’s attitudes towards women and family violence,” he said.

Cr McLeish said the council was considering a way to formally remember Masa.

“It’s premature at this stage. The most important thing is to support Masa’s family in the difficult week they have in front of them,” he said.

BCA CLUB FIRSTS GRAND FINAL

STUMPS ON DAY TWO

BROWN HILL 267 (Alex Code 84, Ryan Knowles 54, Pete Kane 35; Luke Corden 4-54) v Napoleons Sebastopol 118 and 4-18(Matt McMahon 4-5)

A Matt McMahon blitz has all-but-secured Brown Hill the BCA club firsts title.

Napoleons-Sebastopol was left reeling 4-16 at stumps.

McMahon obliterated Naps’ top order in a 4-5 haul. He was simply lethal.

Twice in the past two matches, Napoleons-Sebastopol has clawed its way back. This time looks a bit too tough for Naps.

Brown Hill bat on after tea to push its lead out to 149 runs. Bulls’number seven bat Alex Code was impressive with 84 runs before Naps’ Luke Corden wiped him and the remaining two Bulls’ wickets out.

Naps will resume with captain Carmen Mapatuna and Tyler Dittloff at the crease – Neil Chalmers, Nathan Doonan, Matt Ringin and Liam Rigby are all out.

They need 131runs just to level the Bulls, who can still bat a second innings.

TEA UPDATE, DAY TWO

BROWN HILL 6-199 v NAPOLEONS-SEBASTOPOL 118 at Eastern Oval

The Bulls are batting on. They secured the runs they needed, polished off in a Ryan Knowles boundary, to eclipse Napoleons-Sebastopol’s tallyan hour into play on day two.

This was not without a little drama.

Jason Knowles was dismissed lbw on the first ball of the second over, but Alex Code stepped up in his place to form a 96-run partnership with captain Ryan Knowles for the sixth wicket.

Ryan Knowles reached 54 runs but fell on a Justin Ringin delivery.

Code powered on to tea to reach 53 runs with support from veteran bat Pete Kane.

STUMPS ON DAY ONE

BROWN HILL 4-83 (Shane Harwood 33;Liam Rigby 2-17) v NAPOLEONS-SEBASTOPOL 118 (Neil Chalmers 29, Tyler Dittloff 28; Matt McMahon 4-44, Shane Harwood 3-33, Jason Knowles 2-9)at Eastern Oval

Bull Shane Harwood fell in the day’s penultimate over – a little jab from Napoleons-Sebastopol’s super spinner Justin Ringin on what was Ringin’s first delivery for the final.

Even so, Brown Hill would have to be pretty confident on Saturday evening after a big day on in the Ballarat Cricket Association club firsts final.

The Bulls need 36 runs to claim the first innings as theirs in this four-day final.

How much they can pull aheadis debatable.

Bulls brothers Jason and Ryan Knowles will resume at the crease on Sunday but all other major scoring avenues have already been put back in the pavilion.

Naps’ bowlers should be fairly fresh. They had 31 overs in the field to finish play. LIam Rigby bowled for 12 overs while Matt Ringin, Luke Corden, then spinners Justin Ringin and Camen Mapatuna shared the remaining load.

Harwood, dropped on six runs, chalked up 33off 46 balls. Top-order bats Dan Davies (16 runs) and opener Jack James (18) made starts that did not really lead anywhere.

Rigby, awarded the EJ Cleary Medal on Wednesday, bowled out Chris Banwell in the fifth over and while it had looked like Davies and James found momentum, Davies was clean bowled by Corden on the first ball after 5pm drinks.

EARLIER…

Choosingto bat first, Napoleons-Sebastopol could set the chase early on day one.

Only this option, from winning the toss, meant Naps-Sebas had to face raging Brown Hill tag-team Shane Harwood and Matt McMahon first up too, in this Ballarat Cricket Association club firsts final.

Harwood bowled trademark tight, taking 3-33 off 12 overs (two maidens). McMahon, carrying the bulk of the bowling workload, nabbed 4-44 off 20.

Harwood claimed his first victim, Matt Ringin for a duck, on the first ball of the ninth over.

Then he and McMahon alternated the wicket-taking to drinks – Naps was reeling at 5-61 with captain-coach Carmen Mapatuna trying to steady his order.

The Bulls brought in Tom Bourke-Finn for a bowl, then coach Dan Davies soon after to face his former teammate head-on.

Davies sent the bails flying in his second over with the ball to dismiss Nap’ Tyler Dittloff.

By tea, the Bulls had control. Naps was 7-108 and the Bulls just needed a little polish.

McMahon nabbed his fourth wicket and Jason Knowles collected the final two.

*Naps-Sebas was forced to make a late change ahead of the final. Veteran Geoff Martin was called in to replace an ill Liam Young.
