Call for witnesses re Macgregor collision

Senior Constable Stokan 17 December 2010 11

I’m Senior Constable James Stokan of ACT Policing’s Collision Investigation and Reconstruction Team. I am currently investigating a serious collision that occurred early on Sunday, December 12, on Osburn Drive near Cannan Circuit in Macgregor, in which a green Holden Commodore sedan had collided with a tree.

(re AFP media release link here)

According to a previous thread (here) regarding this collision, there may be readers who have some knowledge of the collision and have not yet come forward as witnesses. If you have knowledge of the collision and have not spoken to Police, please contact myself on 02 62567392, via Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au.

Not only does he have to sit near RAPID jerks

If you haven’t paid your rego / renewed your licence / sufficiently obeyed the law to keep your licence, dont drive your car and you wont have any problems…….dick.

The constable will probably paint a grim picture when he to the bottom of this…

Sorry Officer, I know nothing about the crash.

However, is this the first time that the AFP have used ‘new media’ in this way. I find it a really interesting development (that I think also let’s JZb know the website has hit critical mass…)?

all police are ‘constable’, even the commissioner…

good luck in your investigations, constable.

He’s a senior constable. Not only does he have to sit near RAPID jerks and drive a veedub, but he then gets demoted on a public forum too. terrible. 😉

i understood a collison to be where the impact of one body upon another causes energy to be redistributed between the two bodies; nothing in that to entail that both bodies must have been antecedentally moving. though as noted above, everything is moving…

‘impact’ is the term i loathe – it should refer to to the collision between two physical bodies but now we have ideas ‘impacting’ and other abominations – where are the police for these crimes??

good luck in your investigations, constable.

You obviously haven’t seen the trees in Macgregor 😉

I’m guessing its this comment from a Newbie (that never came back to post again) that drew this attention?

<a href = "I live nearby and heard it – went to see and was horrible. Only thing I can add was that I heard him suddenly accelerate into the corner before the sound of brakes and then the crunch. Distinctly heard the acceleration because often hear speedway action on that stretch of road.

That all depends on your frames of reference and relative momenta.
(Just because the ground you stand on doesn’t apparently shift doesn’t mean you aren’t hurtling through space at 30km/s, orbiting a ball of gas 150,000,000 km away….)

Flipper, I think Senior Constable Stokan is referring to you…

Einstein might have had something to add here, however he is long-departed, though I sense his remains are moving through the space-time continuum as we speak.
