Crash on Gundaroo Drive

By nanzan 6 July 2009 107

There appeared to have been a very nasty crash on Gundaroo Drive this afternoon, involving at least two cars. Does anyone have any details?

Gundaroo Drive was closed between Nudurr Drive and the new turn off to Crace (Areba Avenue?), resulting in quite large detours for traffic on this busy road.

We happened on the scene apparently after the ambulance and fire brigade had left, but there were still five police vehicles (which seemed a lot) and an ACTION minibus in attendance.

It looked bad – hopefully it wasn’t.

[ED – Crimestoppers have a report]

    ACT Policing is investigating a collision in Crace this afternoon (July 5) which resulted in the death of a 29-year-old man.

    Shortly after 1pm, police were called to Gundaroo Drive, Crace, where a Holden Commodore sedan and a Toyota Yaris were involved in a collision.

    Police as well as ACT Fire Brigade and ACT Ambulance officers attended to the six occupants of the two vehicles, four in the Commodore and two in the Yaris. The 29-year-old male, who was the front passenger in the Commodore, was pronounced deceased at The Canberra Hospital.

    Four occupants of the vehicles were conveyed by ACT Ambulance to The Canberra Hospital while the other two went to The Calvary Hospital. The driver of the Commodore and the front passenger of the Yaris remain in a critical but stable condition.

    The Collision Reconstruction and Investigation Team are continuing their investigations into the incident.

    Police are also seeking any persons that may have witnessed the collision or any incident involving a green Holden Commodore earlier in the day to contact Crime Stoppers.

Loveley1981… talk about respect – your father didn’t show any respect, to all those involved, by driving like a lunatic whilst drunk and unlicensed/unregistered. I was behind the car he hit head on and saw exactly what happened, so IMO, most of these comments are pretty fair. I hope he spends a long time in gaol reflecting his stupidity!

Of course it’s sad, but if he drove drunk and did something stupid, well…

The fact that this could have been avoided by following the law and using common sense is probably the most haunting thing about this accident.

Loveley1981, I am sorry for your loss. Lets hope that people learn from this example and realise that laws about drink driving, car registration and licensing are in place for a very good reason.

After reading these comments posted ( bar a few) i’m absolutly discusted on how judgemental people are. How little respect they have for the family and friends . The man that was driving was my father and Andrew was my brother .i really hope something like this dosn’t happen to you maybe you would understand how hurtful your comments have been. You should really get your facts straight before shooting off insults… RIP brother all that new you loved you

I certainly haven’t forgotten and I’d like to know what happened to the driver as well….he deserves to pay for his crime. HE was drunk, one person is dead and the driver and passenger of the other car are severely traumatised for life!

100th comment , now let Andrew rest!

He probably was resting until you resurrected this thread a month after everyone had forgotten about it.
