Teen choked to death in motorcycle accident
A TEENAGE boy has been choked to death in a motorcycle accident on the New South Wales Central Coast, police say.
A passerby raised the alarm about 11.30am (AEDT) when he found the 17-year-old boy lying dead on a fire trail off Katara Road, at Warnervale.
Investigators believe a rope he was carrying across his shoulder became caught in the motorcycle chain and tightened around his neck, choking him to death.
Police will release their findings into the teenager's death in a report to the NSW Coroner.
Sincerest condolences for his family.
