Former senior bikie dies in crash

A former Rebels bikie gang member and his pillion passenger were killed after they were thrown from their motorcycle when it hit a Jeep in Bullsbrook.

Errol Munro, 47, and his 39-year-old friend died at the scene on Wednesday evening when the Harley-Davidson they were riding struck the driver's side of a Jeep Cherokee as the driver allegedly pulled out of a driveway at a Neaves Road property just before 7.45pm.

Locals and passing motorists tried to treat the injured pair until paramedics arrived but they could not be saved.

Two men in the Jeep were not injured.

One man put a cross adorned with a motorcycle at the scene yesterday as a tribute to Mr Munro, a former sergeant-at-arms with the Rebels.

He was remembered as a good friend and family man.

A friend of the 45-year-old man driving the Jeep said the driver was extremely shaken by the crash.

The death of the motorcyclists takes the State's Christmas road toll to four.
