ACT Policing is seeking witnesses and dash-cam footage of a suspected road rage incident last week.  

About 4.30pm on Thursday, 16 May 2024, police responded to reports of a collision and an ongoing disturbance involving two men at the corner of Chartsville Avenue and Box Hill Avenue, Conder.  

Police attended the location, and observed a silver Hyundai Getz had collided with the rear of a white Ford Ranger utility, while a blue Mazda 3 – which was not involved in the collision – was also nearby.  

The drivers of all three vehicles – a woman who was driving the Mazda, and the two men – were subjected to roadside breath screenings for alcohol, with the driver of the Getz, a 19-year-old man from Gilmore, later returning a blood alcohol content of 0.186 - more than three and a half times the legal limit.    

Police are investigating the circumstances of the collision, as well as interactions between the Getz and the Mazda travelling southbound on the Monaro Highway from Fyshwick to Gilmore between 4pm and 4.30pm in the lead-up to the collision.  

Anyone who witnessed these interactions, or who may have dash-cam footage of the vehicles travelling on the Monaro Highway, is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website.  Please quote reference 7750439. Information can be provided anonymously.
