Bad girl on the run from the law

By johnboy - 28 November 2011 38

ACT Policing has arrested a 14-year-old girl after a vehicle pursuit last night (Sunday, 27 November).

Around 11.50pm, members from Belconnen Police Station were conducting mobile patrol on Baldwin Drive, Kaleen when they observed a white Mitsubishi Lancer travelling at excessive speed on Ginninderra Drive.

Police turned onto Ginninderra Drive and activated emergency lights and sirens in an attempt to pull the car over. The car accelerated away at a speed approaching 130km/hr in an 80km/hr zone and a pursuit commenced.

As the car approached intersection of Mouat Street, the driver went through a red light. The driver then failed to negotiate the corner, loosing control of the car, striking a concrete traffic island.

After being assessed by ACT Ambulance Service, the youth was apprehended and taken to City Watch House.

The youth will face the ACT Children’s Court today (Monday, 28 November) charged with traffic offences including illegal use of a motor vehicle, unlicensed driving, not stopping when signalled by police and reckless/dangerous driving.

If she’d crashed into an oncoming car, that fate may have befallen the driver of the car. Hmmm how about a like for like punishment then if a speeding driver causes injury to another?

Pity the paramedics didn’t do something useful……….like severing her spinal cord at the base of her neck.

I’m all for summary execution of car thieves but your suggestion is a bit stiff…

The white lancer, or indeed a lancer of any colour, is the female version of the white commodore.

White Lancer with frangipanis, maybe.

“Loosing” control. Nice.

It is nice that ACT Policing has somewhere to go to receive a critique of their media releases… not everyone gets that luxury…

If all else fails, the AFP could take over media management for the Canberra Liberals.

I’m sure Jeremy and Alastair woudl love having to share the fax machine.

In this case, “loosing” be be bowel related having lost control

I thought the same thing, If i lost control of my car at 130km/hr, im sure i’d be in the same situation.

In this case, “loosing” be be bowel related having lost control or perhaps a reference to the promiscuity of young female lancer drivers.
