Police seek witnesses to hit and run on Cotter Road which trapped a woman in rolled car

Police are seeking witnesses and dash-cam footage relating to an alleged ‘hit and run’ on the Cotter Road at Curtin late yesterday (May 25) in which a white Honda CRV rolled onto its roof – with firefighters then having to free the trapped driver, who was taken to hospital. Police say the driver of the other vehicle, a white Toyota utility, left the scene without assisting. Region Media understands that the driver of the Toyota later stopped near the Tuggeranong Parkway turnoff due to damage to his vehicle and ran off on foot (footage of both cars is shown).

Cars don't just "roll over" of their own accord - if we're going to be serious about road trauma, we're going to have to stop blaming inanimate objects.

Hope the lady was not seriously injured.

Another example of how SUVs with their designed high centre of gravity are prone to flip in minor collisions.

    Really? You blame the SUV’s centre of gravity - not human/driver error? Quite remarkable.

    SUV? Really?! That looks like a Honda CRV, which is neither sports, or utility.
