ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to a collision on the northbound lanes of Tuggeranong Parkway, between Sulwood Drive and Hindmarsh Drive, earlier this morning (Monday, August 22).

The collision occurred about 10am when an unidentified driver slammed on the brakes of their car, causing the driver behind in a white Hyundai Getz to brake heavily, lose control and the car to roll a number of times.

The driver of the other vehicle left the scene without providing any details.

The woman from the Hyundai Getz was taken to The Canberra Hospital for treatment for possible back injuries.

The vehicle that left the scene is described as a small four-wheel drive, possibly white or silver in colour, about 5-10 years old with ACT registration.

The unidentified driver is described as female, Caucasian in appearance with blonde, bobbed hair, and a round face. She is approximately 22 years of age and of normal build.

Police are seeking information from anyone how may have witnessed the collision or who may have information of the driver involved in the collision.

Information can be provided via Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

The Tuggeranong Parkway was closed between Sulwood Drive and Hindmarsh Drive, northbound, for approximately 3 hours while police conducted their investigation.

Aggressive and unskilled drivers are legion nowadays. Many of them carry an identifing label, a green or red P. But not always.

Alternate identification is by the hi-vis shirt, which serves at least as much purpose on the roads as on the job site.

Pull your opinionated head in, how the hell can you seriously believe that? Describe yourself and I am sure I can stereotype you as well and I am sure I will sound just as stupid.

I completely agree with his stereotype in regards to hi-vis, and have discussed it with others who agree as well. While it may be over-inflated in people’s minds due to the fact that a guy in hi-vis driving like a dickhead sticks out more in the memory than a guy in non-descript clothing driving like a dickhead, there are certainly a lot of guys in hi-vis in a rush to get somewhere.

I am a 30 year old white male with an office job btw. Yes I probably do drive like a grandpa.
