Mix 94.5 legend Fred Botica hit by van

Staff Writer

Fred Botica, best known for his time on Perth’s Mix 94.5 Breakfast team, was the subject of a road rage incident.

The 71-year-old was riding his scooter home from the gym on Wednesday a van pulled out in front of him, cutting him off.

Fred got back on his scooter then pulled up alongside the van at the next traffic lights to try and get an explanation, but the driver claimed not to have seen him.

Then after the traffic lights, the van driver purposely knocked Fred off his scooter.

“I’m actually glad I got away with what I did. I’ve got grazes all on my right side leg and arms, but my buttocks are very sore,” he told 6PR Breakfast.

Steve and Baz also asked Fred if he was missing doing radio, having retired in 2014.

“No, I think if I was missing it i’d still be doing it,” responded Fred.
