Motorbike rider dies in horrific Sydney crash caught on dashcam

The busy road in Sydney's north was closed while several ambulance crews attended the scene.

Dashcam footage has captured the fatal collision between a motorbike and SUV at a busy Sydney intersection on Wednesday.

The collision occurred on Epping Road in Macquarie Park in the city's north just after midday. It appears the motorbike rider — a man in his 30s — intended to travel straight through the traffic lights while the silver Toyota SUV coming from the opposite direction was making a right turn. The two vehicles collided and the rider was knocked from his bike and left lying on the road.
