Midland man remembered after crash

By Melissa Sheil

A MAN who was described by his family as “one in a million”, sadly died last week, after being hit by a bus in Midland during peak hour.

Robbie Wendie was struck by a TransPerth bus on Helena Street outside Midland train station at around 5.30pm last Friday, October 15.

Mr Wendie’s niece mourned the loss of her uncle on Facebook.

“My uncle was one in a million no matter who or what he was,” she said.

“He was well known and well respected in the community.”

Mr Wendie was  known to be homeless and a client of Indigo Junction, who attended Karnany Resource Centre most days.

Midland is known to have a high homeless population, with the City of Swan declaring a homelessness crisis in 2020.

A memorial of flowers and cards to Mr Wendie decorates one of the traffic lamps on Helena Street.

Police say investigation into Mr Wendies death is ongoing.
