Barton taxi smash

By johnboy - 28 July 2013 11

ACT Policing’s Collision Investigation and Reconstruction team are investigating the cause of a collision between a taxi and a car in Barton last night (Saturday, July 27).

At about 11pm last night, a silver Toyota Hiace taxi was approaching the intersection of Morshead Drive and Russell Drive, westbound when it collided with a white Ford Falcon sedan also travelling westbound.

The impact caused the driver of the taxi to lose control of the vehicle before it veered across a centre median island and struck a street light pole.

A 24-year-old female passenger has been taken to The Canberra Hospital where she remains in a critical condition.

Anyone who may have witnessed the collision and who has not yet spoken with police, is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

I concur.

And scuttlebutt is suggesting the silver hiace was a Queanbeyan taxi.

I’ll also stand corrected but that intersection is not in Barton, it’s Campbell…

On what map is that Barton.

Doesn’t sound like Barton either!

“…silver Toyota Hiace taxi…”

I’ll stand corrected but I am fairly certain there aren’t any. Silver Toyota Tarago or Silver VW Transporter would be correct. The only Toyota Hiaces in the fleet are white.
