Incident type: Close call
Location of incident: b Camberwarra Drive, Craigie Western Australia 6025, Australia


Travelling on a local road, 50km/h, travelling downhill with a breeze behind me. At the time of the incident, I was travelling at the posted speed limit. A group of 4 young men in an older model Toyota Landcruiser passed me. Probably a bit more than a metre away, but the driver started braking as he came along side of me and continued braking until he came to a complete stop on the road.
As the car passed me, the front passenger threw an empty water bottle out the window that then hit my bike.
GPX and TPX files were not accepted, but I have save them.
