Police are seeking witnesses and dash-cam footage relating to an alleged ‘hit and run’ on the Cotter Road at Curtin late yesterday (Saturday 25 May) which left a woman trapped in a car which had rolled onto its roof.

At about 5.20 pm yesterday, a white Toyota utility and a white Honda CRV collided near the Equestrian Park, causing the CRV to leave the road and flip, with its driver unable to get out.

ACT Policing said the driver of the Toyota did not stop to assist and left the scene.

Region Media understands that the driver of the Toyota later stopped near the Tuggeranong Parkway turn-off due to damage to his vehicle and ran off on foot. The video footage below shows both damaged vehicles.
