    People are starting to pay tribute, so I am presuming its true even though it hasn't officially been released. I just hope his family know and don't read about it.

    Confirmed on Channel 7 news. Sad news.

    Its also confirmed on the Herald Sun website, which also has " If you or someone you know needs help, contact LifeLine on 13 11 14. " under it, so its possibly a deliberate act ?

    I see that theme is also amongst many comments online

    I wonder if those first on scene found the seat belt had been removed and no brake marks?

    Anyway, very sad all the same

    Its a straight dirt road and the section only has 2 trees according to the Google Maps image. You would think it would be hard to hit unless 1. Speed, 2. Drink Driving 3. Deliberate act. Or a combination of some or all of them.

    That will be one less cyclist in the pack @6.ooam mid week on Beach Rd, Bayside. He had the same attitude on the bike as he did playing football, fast furious and straight ahead
    Rest in peace Spud

    He was honest about his fight with depression, I'd suggest that this was just an unfortunate accident. I fell for his friends, fans, and family.
    I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message...

    I just noticed from the Wiki I posted....
    Danny's death comes one day after his 56th Birthday
    And then the Age reporting his marriage break down....

    Very sad circumstances regardless of any football nonsense

    He died not far from the family potato farm in Bungaree where he was raised and learned to play football.

    Frawley had spoken candidly about his battle with mental health over many years. In recent weeks he confided in friends and family that his marriage was over and personal finances were under severe strain.

    In quiet moments, he told those he trusted that he was struggling to cope, his marriage was failing and his finances were shot, the result of a big investment gone bad. His problems were well known to his family.

    Its being reported in the news, that there were no skid marks leading to the accident and the car drove directly at the tree.
    The death has reportedly been taken off Victoria's official road toll.



    Official report still to come
    Bloody sad
