Just after 1pm on Saturday (September 18), police and emergency services were called to a serious crash at Saddleworth, following reports of a motorcycle accident on the Barrier Highway just south of Golfcourse Road.
The rider, a 31-year-old Paralowie man, was critically injured and sadly died at the scene.
The highway was closed to all traffic including heavy vehicles as Major Crash Investigators attended the scene, but was reopened later that evening.
The man’s death is the 69th life lost on SA roads compared with 63 at the same time last year.
