Anyone know what happened in Jerra last night?

By lisagrace - 24 February 2008 35

On my way home last night from a party I was driving up Lanyon Drive towards Queanbeyan at approx 11pm and five police cars flew past in the opposite direction all turning up towards Jerrabomberra.

Does anyone know what was happening?

one of my passengers suggested there must have been a big brawl at the Jerra pub, someone else said car accident but really would either warrant five cop cars?

What’s Your opinion?

You’d be suprised how many times NSW have to go into the ACT for enquiries, deliver subpoenas, and generally do their day to day work.

And yes, a lot of patients are taken to the Canberra Hospital from all over… it’s not uncommon to have a Cooma ambulance come up.

You do get AFP cars in Queanbeyan a bit too.

“Why? Jerrabomberra is NSW not ACT. The AFP have nothing to do with it.”

I stand corrected. Though someone should tell the NSW police that, every second day, I see NSW police cars traveling around Woden. NSW ambulances in the ACT I can understand, they transport people to CH all the time. NSW Police driving on the main roads and sometimes in the burbs, parked at Woden and Manuka on our side of the border?

I saw a few cop cars around a crash when driving last night along Tompsitt Drive.

Yeah that was it, I was listening to the scanner at the time that it happened 🙂

el … you’d better stop using such obscure words, it confuses people like CanberraResident

if it was anything, we’ll probably see a media release next week on the AFP website.

To expand, the police had a report of persons trapped serious accident… but it wasn’t that bad when they got there.

It was just an accident on Tompsitt Drive, no one severely injured.

Ok, enough humour.

Well that was rather self aggrandising.

Aside from the three not-so-hilarious and very predictable attempts at humour above, I’d be interested to know what happened in Jerra too. After all, this is RiotACT remember … Canberra News, Information and Opinion. Yeah?
