Ipswich Branch Blog Post New Entry

From Lockyer Branch Face book

Some of you may have heard of the recent incident involving a motorcyclist and truck on Kings Parade Ipswich, the following is taken from the Lockyer Branch Facebook page, I have sent the best wishes of our Branch to Mel via Foggy. For the member's information: Some concerning news about one of our members. 'Mad' Mel had a collision today with a truck allegedly performing a 'U' turn in front of her. She and her bike collided with the rear bogie of the truck. She has internal injuries, head injuries, a broken collarbone and some other more minor injuries. She is in the PA hospital recovering from emergency surgery tonight. I have asked to be kept informed of her progress as visitor numbers are very limited.

Thankyou for keeping us updated. For the new members, when you attend the Ipswich Toy Run you receive a patch. This patch was designed with Mel Hughes in mind because she used to have a sidecar and carried her loyal dog with her on rides in it. I have many memories especially a parade through Ipswich beside Mel. The dog used to tuck itself into the chair when the bike was moving but when going very slow or stopped, it used to sit up and bark its head off. By the time the parade was over the dog was nearly hoarse. I hope Mel makes a sleedy recovery

I read about this at the motorbike writer site and wondered if we knew her, in any event I prayed for a speedy recovery for her. Stay safe all of you.

Dam, I heard the news I was hoping it was none of our club members, I thought about the right age, didn't like the sound of it, I hate hearing of a rider down, especially a Ulysses member, my heart goes out to her, I hope she comes through this ok, I send my best wishes for a full recovery. from Crash.
