Family mourns pair who died in tragic motorcycle crash in Perth’s north

The parents of a six-year-old boy have died in a motorcycle crash in Perth’s north, with police still investigating the circumstances behind the tragedy.

Paul Pearce, 39, was riding his Honda motorcycle along Pinjar Road in Tapping on Sunday evening with 35-year-old Lynette Reader as his passenger.

Around 9.20pm a silver Toyota Aurion driving in the opposite direction crashed into the motorcycle at the intersection of Galileo Avenue.

Both Pearce and Reader did not survive the crash, while the driver of the Toyota, a 43-year-old woman, was taken to hospital with an eye injury.

In an emotional Facebook post, Lynette’s brother Todd said his sister was “way too young to have left us.”

“The pain I feel is hard to put into words. Wish you stayed in Tasmania, wish this was just a bad dream. You leave behind your beautiful son, I promise to be there for him. This is one pain I never wanted to feel, you were meant to grow old and cranky with me,” he wrote.

“A sister is someone who loves you from the heart, no matter how much you argue you cannot be drawn apart. She was a joy that was taken away. I’m just lost this day, I’ll always think about you.”

WA Police Commissioner Col Blanch said police were investigating whether speed had been a factor in the crash.

“Obviously, Major Crash is investigating, but these are very tragic circumstances. We’ve seen a number of motorcycle fatalities this year and it’s a very, very strong reminder that motorcycling is a dangerous way to move around,” he said.
