Pierces creek losers found

By johnboy - 11 June 2012 21

ACT Policing along with ACT Fire and Rescue and ACT Ambulance, safely located two men after their car rolled down an embankment within Pierces Creek Forest yesterday, (Sunday 11 June).

About 10.00pm, the driver of a white Subaru Impreza carrying a single passenger was driving along Murrays Creek road when it misjudged a slight bend in the dirt road, losing control of the vehicle and rolling down an embankment for 40 metres.

The two occupants were able to free themselves from the vehicle, however confused and disorientated, they walked away from the vehicle in the opposite direction to the road and up the adjacent hill through thick blackberry bushes.

After attempting to find their way out of the bushes for some time, they realised they were lost and contacted Police via a mobile phone.

A number of Police, Fire, and Ambulance units were dispatched to conduct a search of the area with urgency, considering their potential injuries and the low temperatures expected.

During the search, ACT Policing operations kept in contact with the men asking if they could hear the sirens of the rescue party getting closer or further away, and relaying that information to the troops on the ground.

Due to the combined efforts and knowledge of the area by Tuggeranong Patrol members, ACT Fire and Rescue and ACT Ambulance, the two males were located approximately 50 minutes later.

They were treated by ACT Ambulance and conveyed to the Canberra Hospital with minor injuries, exposure and bruises and abrasions.

I can’t find Murray’s Creek Road on any of my maps, and suspect it might be Murphy’s Creek Road. Anyway, most of those bush trails have no cats eye posts, so no night guidance what so ever. It is very easy to come off them, even at a slow pace.
I’ve driven from Angle Crossing to Naas road via Sunshine Crossing and vise versa quite a lot. I’ve come across cars that have come off that road and ended up in the trees, unable to back up on to the road. There are a few markings on that road but with hairpin corners,it is not fun at night.So are the people who came off that road a loser? I don’t think so.
How would you like it if you had been in a car accident at night, been injured and then had some inconsiderate people call you a loser? I don’t think you’d appreciate it. There is something wrong with the mentality of a lot of the regulars on this forum.

First and foremost I think they are losers.

Since the police say it was near Pierces Ck Forest I’d assume they are talking about Murray’s Corner.

If, as you say “it is not fun at night” then what were they doing out there?

I don’t think you should be driving at night if you think, “it is very easy to come off them, even at a slow pace.”

If you have a car accident at night because you are hooning around then that is simply a consequence of your actions. Suck it up and be thankful you didn’t injure/kill anyone else.

I wholeheartedly agree with you about the mentality of a lot of the regulars on this forum.

Has anyone questioned why these people were driving in such a remote area at 10.00pm on a Sunday night? As I said earlier, there is something very sus about this report.
