Witnesses sought to dangerous driving incident in Waramanga

Witnesses Sought

ACT Policing is seeking to speak to the driver of a black car who narrowly avoided a head-on collision in Waramanga on Saturday afternoon (29 May 2021).

Police are also seeking any other witnesses and dash-cam footage of two blue cars involved in a collision on Badimara Street.

The incident occurred about 2pm on Saturday when a blue BMW attempted to overtake a blue Toyota Corolla.

Police allege the BMW then hit the Corolla when it swerved back onto the correct side of the road, to avoid a black vehicle travelling in the opposite direction.

The black car is described as being a small sedan or hatchback.

Acting Superintendent of ACT Road Policing Donna Hofmeier said this incident was a timely reminder that police do not tolerate dangerous driving on our roads.

“Acting aggressively on the road is incredibly dangerous behaviour that puts yourself and others at considerable risk,” Acting Superintendent Hofmeier said.

“A small accident can have serious consequences and could result in serious injuries or death.”

Anyone with information that could assist police is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website. Please quote reference 6811024. Information can be provided anonymously.
