Minibike crash

A 30-YEAR-OLD man was airlifted to the Alfred hospital at about 3.30am Saturday with broken ribs and an aneurysm on the brain after he decided to go for a joy ride on a mini-bike while attending a private party in Sale.

The man started the bike, took off at speed before hitting a kerb and colliding with a tree. He is reported to now be in a stable condition.

Over the limit

A 45-YEAR-OLD Sale woman was intercepted by police last week driving with a blood alcohol reading of 0.145.
