Detectives from the major collision investigation unit are appealing for a mystery motorcyclist, who may be a key witness in a major crash that happened on the Monash Freeway last month, to come forward and assist them in their ongoing investigation.
The incident happened on Monday 28 December, when it is alleged two cars that were seen travelling city bound on the Monash began racing one another, weaving in and out of traffic and changing lanes before one of the vehicles crashed.
The driver, a 20-year-old Dandenong man, was taken to hospital with life threatening injuries while his 18-year-old passenger, also from Dandenong, was taken to hospital as well but with non-life threatening injuries.
Police investigators are hoping to identify a motorcyclist who was on the freeway at the time and may have witnessed the incident, and could potentially shed some new light on the situation.
A 20-year-old Narre Warren South man was arrested on Wednesday 30 December in relation to the incident and a vehicle was seized by police.
The man was charged with negligently causing serious injury, dangerous driving causing serious injury, conduct endangering life and conduct endangering a person.
He is set to face court again on Thursday 6 May.
Anyone with information about the incident or who can help locate the motorcyclist is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or by submitting a confidential report at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au
