Boffo bingle at North Ainslie Primary

Thanks to Gungahlin Al for the tip.

In the small hours of the morning (one resident reckons 3.30am) someone managed to get the Majura-Davenport roundabout very badly wrong.

It looks like the car clipped a tree on the wrong side and rolled before coming to rest in the school’s fence.

UPDATED: Apparently a 25yr old from Goulburn was pulled from the passenger seat and blew over for DUI. There’s a media release from the police somewhere, but not online.

I went to the Nullarbor and back (with five people and a trailer) in a camry like that, it actually went pretty well. There was some excitement when in the middle of nowhere on a giant clay pan, it decided to rain on us, but we slid through it. Wouldn’t have liked to be drunk though… not that there was really anything to hit though..

Someone forgot the Camry was an understeering, front wheel drive, point A to point B car….and nothing more.

oh, come on. I have a camry. newer model than this one. maybe the fact that the driver was well over the limit had something to do with it?

imagine if that was an HSV commodore in the fence? car or driver?

I want Loose Brown to write a story about The Camry That Wanted To Fly.

Can I be first to call Todd Carney?

Todd is only 22 lol

One way to total your car and not get an insurance payout. I can’t even see how he managed to do that, must have been going at speed and straight over the middle of the roundabout.

By the Look of it I hope they Didn’t Have any Passengers

It looks like it flew like a bird and landed like a hippopotamus.

Here’s the police release… they’ve now issued a correction to Ainslie.

Goulburn eh..

For immediate release

Alleged drink driver almost three times over limit

A 25-year-old Goulburn man will face a drink driving charge after the vehicle he was driving collided with a fence in Hackett earlier today (November 5).

About 4.40am, police conducting routine patrols found a grey Toyota Camry sedan with significant damage to the front end and the rear of the vehicle resting on a steel mesh fence at Hackett Primary School, Majura Avenue, Hackett.

The alleged driver returned a positive result to an initial roadside breath screening test and was conveyed to the City Police Station where he recorded a blood alcohol reading of 0.135 grams of alcohol per 100mL of blood – almost three times over the 0.05 limit.

The man will be summonsed to face the ACT Magistrates Court on February 18, 2009.

What are they worried about, it’ll buff out…

Even if it wasn’t stolen, how much you want to bet that the owner tells the police it was? Hope they are OK, that looks like a pretty decent crash to wander away from without getting at least a checkup.

If it is stolen, then they left $5 on the dash for the damage.

I reckon the tree will need a few more hits on the other side before it is fully ringbarked.

Bloody Canberra drivers!

Normally I’d agree V8, but them be NSW Licence Plates.

Sniff, Sniff….I’m smelling stolen vehicle.

johnboy 10:21 am 05 Nov 08

The impression I’d got was that the driver didn’t hang around to talk to the authorities.

But I’m happy to be corrected on that.

squashee 10:20 am 05 Nov 08

Did they get a breath test?? Melbourne Cup – write off car at 3:30am.. Coincidence??

Granny 10:17 am 05 Nov 08

Bloody hell!

Bloody Canberra drivers!

Bloody Camry drivers!
