ACT Policing is investigating an incident Saturday night, (February 9) in which a 24-year-old Gordon man was injured after falling from a car in Rivett.

Police attended a Rivett address around 9.10pm as a man was about to be conveyed to The Canberra Hospital. The injured man told police he had fallen from the rear passenger window of a vehicle onto the ground while attempting to photograph the left rear wheel of the car.

Police had received reports of burnouts at that location a short time before the incident.

The man was cleared of serious injury. He will receive Traffic Infringement Notices for failing to wear a seatbelt and have part of his body outside the vehicles window.
