Police Wrap – 24 June

By johnboy 24 June 2009 29

1. Mawson collision explained:

    ACT Policing’s Collision Investigation and Reconstruction Team are investigating a three vehicle collision which has resulted in a 24-year-old man being arrested.

    A mobile Traffic Operations Officer was on patrol in the Mawson area around 2.20pm today (June 23) when he recorded a Suzuki Swift allegedly traveling over 140km/h in the 60km/h zone on Beasley Street. Police will allege that upon sighting the officer the offender accelerated away running a red light at the intersection of Athlon Drive and Beasley Street colliding with a vehicle, which in turn collided with a third vehicle.

    The driver was conveyed to The Canberra Hospital for minor injuries and remains there under police guard. His female passenger is currently being treated for a broken leg. The occupants of the two other vehicles were treated at the scene by ACT Ambulance Service and two occupants were conveyed to The Canberra Hospital as a precautionary measure.

    The alleged offender will face the ACT Magistrates Court tomorrow (June 24) charged with culpable driving causing grievous bodily harm, failing to stop when requested by police and breaching his bail conditions.

    Police would urge anyone who may have witnessed the collision, or the circumstances prior to the collision and is yet to speak to police, to contact Crime Stoppers.

If you can help police contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or online.

> and breaching his bail conditions.

It always seems to be the same scum…over &amd; over again.

Yes, the person in question has been in and out of the justice sytem since he was a young person.
An example of ‘the sytsem’ not working.
Such a horrible situation.
I hope everyone recovers and am just glad that he didn’t kill somebody.

So he took a DC vehicle off the road?

Every cloud . . .

I drove past it twice yesterday – the swift was definitely the one with the roof cut off (it was green, and I looked closely because one of my brothers drives a little green car!).

One of the others involved had DC plates.

Out of interest, where did you hear this?

One of the things the Police have told us RFS Guys where “studies” have found that kiddies go out looking when the sirens are, so a cop car doing 140k’s through a school zone & kids running out to see the noise don’t always mix.

#4 the Darwin Awards JATO rocket on car roof is an urban myth and never happened.

As for the driver of the Swift, he won’t get more than a suspended sentence from our pathetic judiciary.

But I know that the offender was heading to Torrens Primary school as all emergency service vechiles are to do the posted 40k limit in school zones & turn off sirens/flashing lights. So if the offender had a green light he would of got away. I am not condoning what the ******, *********, ******* did, but I’ve been told that.

Sooo, what exactly are you trying to say ??

Maybe the guy who was on here a few weeks ago with his “NOS powered” Barina changed the badges to Suzuki Swift GTi ones to make it go even faster? I can only hope it was him…

That would explain the 88 mph. Wasn’t the guy who had the Barina named Marty McFly? Where is that guy? Why didn’t he stop this happening?
