CALL FOR WITNESSES FOLLOWING HOONING INCIDENT AT CRASH SCENE
Police are calling for witnesses following a hooning incident at Lower Turners Marsh at a crash scene in which a young man was critically injured.
Members of Northern Crash Investigation Services this morning conducted a scene survey of the Christmas Day crash site where a young man was critically injured on Pipers River Road at Lower Turners Marsh.
“Police found that a vehicle had deliberately performed ‘burnouts’ over and around the crash scene markings,” Senior Constable Michal Rybka said.
“The burnouts were performed multiple times over double continuous white lines and over both traffic lanes. Police are disappointed that the driver responsible has not only put themselves at risk, but also other road users. The location of the incident was in a higher speed zone with limited visibility from both directions of travel.”
Enquiries so far have identified that the burnouts occurred around 4 pm on Wednesday 26 December 2018 (Boxing Day).
Police wish to speak to the driver of a dark blue Holden Commodore sedan with possibly dark coloured aftermarket rims and tinted windows.
Information can be provided to Senior Constable Michal RYBKA of Northern Crash Investigation Services on 67773936 or to Crime Stoppers anonymously on 1800 333 000 or online at https://www.crimestoppers.com.au
