A road ambulance was not called as he died on impact, an Ambulance Victoria spokesperson said.

Ajax was killed just after celebrating his 41st birthday in Melbourne, but police have ruled out foul play as a cause.
Sweat It Out issued a statement in the wake of his death, calling Ajax “instrumental in shaping the landscape of Australian dance music."
