ACT Policing seeking witnesses to learner driver crash

By Ruqi 30 July 2012 27

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an incident around noon today (Monday, July 30) in which a maroon-coloured VS Holden Commodore sedan ran off the road at high speed and hit trees.

The incident occurred northbound on Drakeford Drive, in Bonython.

The only occupant of the Commodore, a 21-year-old learner driver from Calwell, received injuries to his knees and was conveyed to The Canberra Hospital.

ACT Policing’s Collision Investigation and Reconstruction Team (CIRT) is seeking witnesses to the events which led up to the crash and which may have involved a gold-coloured Holden utility.

Any witnesses who can assist the investigation are urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800-333-000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au

Yes, it’s entirely possible the learner driver somehow lost his accompaniment through no fault of his own, wasn’t speeding, and didn’t do anything dangerous, careless, nor reckless to cause the accident. In fact, without witnesses, it will presumably be so much hard work trying to charge him for anything that they might find it more convenient to pin it on David Eastman.

Most probably, he has already been convicted by a jury for murder, I mean, there must have been no evidence for that to happen.

You’d think so, wouldn’t you? Only there wasn’t.

Really? From what I read there was a bit, what did you read?

Stop reading fairy tales then.

Forensic evidence linking him to the murder weapon? Nope.
Forensic evidence placing him at the crime scene? Nope.

Nada.

They employed a psychologist to (completely unethically, but that’s psychology for you) tell them the best way to make Eastman act bonkers for the jury and they implemented those recommendations successfully.

“%” doesn’t mean what you think it does. And even if it did, I am struggling to picture what a “360% angle” is. Does it mean he went straight??

Doing a 360 would mean you did a complete spin and kept going in the same direction. No mean feat.

Also I blame the school system for this post.

Instead of asking for witnesses, why don’t they just ask the f’wit behind the wheel?

Because drivers never lie so they should just take his word for it. What good could witnesses be in helping to build a strong brief? Genius.

Someone who knows jack s*** about the Eastman trial thinks there is a big conspiracy theory (despite no evidence). Colour me surprised. The moon landing was fake, US government blew up the WTC, Oscar the grouch shot JFK. Please keep reinforcing my view that conspiracy theorists are all cretinous nutbags.

I will not have you try to pin JFK’s death on Oscar the Grouch. He wasn’t even born until 10/11/69 according to wiki.

You grubby little man…

To follow up on my other comment, the other car seen speeding down the road was dark blue, these two cars may possibly have some involvement in the incident, seems highly likely that they do, considering the timing, at the very least they would have seen what happened.
