Share Canberra's trusted news:


ACT Policing has charged a 41-year-old Giralang woman with driving offences following a minor collision in Kambah yesterday (July 22).

About 6.10pm, a black BMW 318i sedan collided with a white Hyundai i40 station wagon, which had been stationary at a red light at the intersection of Drakeford Drive and Summerland, Kambah. No persons involved in the incident required medical treatment.

ACT Policing Traffic Operations members attended the collision and required a breath test from the driver of the black sedan, a 41-year-old Giralang woman. The driver refused and was taken into custody and conveyed to Tuggeranong Police Station. The woman then underwent a breath analysis, which returned a result of 0.172.

The woman was identified as being a disqualified driver, driving and unregistered vehicle and a repeat drink driving offender.

The 41-year-old Giralang woman will face the ACT Magistrates Court in relation to driving offences next month.

Police urge anyone who may have witnessed the incident to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via Information can be provided anonymously.
