Hindmarsh Drive closed to Queanbeyan

By Sammy - 6 February 2007 49

As of 3:45pm this afternoon Hindmarsh Drive is closed to Queanbeyan. Police are directing traffic to Queanbeyan via the Monaro Highway to Jerrabomberra.

Anyone know the reason for the road closure?

What’s Your opinion?

Late teen P Plater hit a tree and was taken to hospital in a critical condition. Police estimate he was travelling in excess of 140km/h. Accident happened just after 2pm, the road will probably be closed right through peak hour.

It’s Canberra Avenue that was closed, just after the Hindmarsh intersection. Apparently it is open again now, but there are still longer than usual delays in and around the area.

Sorry, when you’re driving at 140+ it ain’t an accident, its an inevitability

Only if you take your hands off the wheel to light a cigarette/text your mate/pick your nose.

Looking at the footage on the ABC News, it looked like he crossed the median strip, across 3 lanes of traffic going the other way, up an embankment and into a tree.

There were thick skid marks the whole way, so he must have been travelling at a *very* quick pace.

P plater, 140 clicks…

That’s close to 90 mph folks, sounds faster in mph, doesn’t it.

I’m with NTP on this one…

If you need two hands to pick your nose, Hasdrubahl, you probably need medical attention…

The car crash is a cover story, it was actually a UFO crash.
