ACT Policing investigators continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the ACT’s ninth road fatality that occurred late yesterday on Drakeford Drive in Kambah.

At approximately 5.45pm police attempted to pull over a vehicle of interest. The driver of the vehicle accelerated away from police who followed for a short time until the response was terminated.

The vehicle continued at high speed along Drakeford Drive and drove through a red light signal which caused a collision with two other vehicles. The collision resulted in the death of the driver of the fleeing vehicle and injuries to four others.

This collision will be investigated by the ACT Policing Collision Investigation and Reconstruction Team with oversight by AFP Professional Standards.

The outcomes of these investigations will be referred to the Coroner.

ACT Policing’s Collision Investigation and Reconstruction Team is requesting that any witnesses to the incident who have not yet spoken with police should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on act.crimestoppers.com.au.
