Did you see the Athllon Drive collision?

By johnboy - 14 September 2012 21

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to a single vehicle collision, which occurred on Athllon Drive, Kambah yesterday (Thursday, September 13).

Around 12.20pm, a silver Nissan Skyline GT coupe was travelling north on Athllon Drive (approximately 200m north of Sulwood Drive) when it left the roadway and rolled down an embankment. The 22-year-old Theodore man was the only occupant of the vehicle and was not injured in the collision.

ACT Policing’s Collision Investigation and Reconstruction Team are currently investigating the incident.

Any witnesses to the collision who have not yet spoken to police are urged to contact ACT Policing Operations on 131-444. Alternatively, they can call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via www.act.crimestoppers.com.au.

Seems odd, a single vehicle accident, with a single occupant who didn’t sustain any injury. Can’t they just give him a neg driving fine and be done with it?

I wonder how fast he was going, or what else he could’ve been doing at the time. There is bugger all traffic on that road most days usually at lunch time….

Maybe the vehicle’s performance collided with the driver’s lack of performance in keeping the vehicle on the road?

Sounds to me like he buggered up his car going down an embankment. Case closed?

The car involved does rather give one cause to suspect the circumstances.

Probably the ground. Since it rolled, probably several times.

Two questions immediately spring to mind:

1. Was it his car?
2. Who was he racing?

Interesting, there was another accident yesterday just past the Anketell/Cowlishaw intersection in Tuggeranong. Would have been around 1pm.

Odd thing was there only appeared to be a single vehicle smashed, whole front quarter imploded, wheel ripped off and the car stranded in the middle of the road. And the vehicle was surrounded by Police cars including one of the SRS 4x4s. No fire brigade, no ambulance though.

I’m guessing the roundabout at Sulwood Dr might have made a cameo appearance in this play…

What embankment? The road is pretty well level with the bike path all the way up the hill, the lowest part being on the corner to the road going to the horse paddocks & that would be 100m north of Sulwood Dve at best. There is a bank that is higher than the road just passed the crest.

I wonder if he managed to spear himself so far of the road that he hit the channel running off the other side of the bike path?

me thinks he is trying to say someone ran him off the road or some such excuse to validate his stupidity.
