Hit and run driver charged.

By Thumper 3 July 2007 22

As you are all well aware, Phil Gaetjens Treasurer Peter Costello’s chief of staff was seriously injured last Friday when hit by a car whilst crossing State Circle.

ACT police arrested and charged Nealle Andrew Simpson, 28, of Monash after information from a family member allegedly identified him as the driver of the car.

He has since been released on bail and will reappear in court on 24 July.

Mr Gaetjens remains in a serious but stable condition in hospital.

Comments please but let the courts decide the outcome.

totally agree with you on that score Sash…

How Stanhope managed to weasel out of that one has me still stunned.

Go back through the RA archives and you’ll find plenty of heated discussion about that very subject.

Stupid tactic. Sign of guilt. And clearly, ineffective – particularly if your family dobs you in but also because cars rust but don’t disintegrate completely. Clearly the same dints that identified the car would remain after a short time submerged in water. The felon should have watched more CSI or Forensic Investigators for clues on how to deal with this one!
