‘P’ plater causes collision then flees

POLICE are seeking witnesses to a hit and run on Ginninderra Drive, on Wednesday night  (August 9) after a Toyota Hilux pulled out in front of a motorcycle from William Slim Drive, causing the motorcycle to heavily collide with the rear of the ute. 

Following the collision, at about 9.55pm, the driver of the Hilux was seen at a stop about 100 metres up the road, and then left the scene without checking the rider or leaving details. The motorcyclist was transported to the Canberra Hospital as a precaution.

Acting station sergeant Marcus Boorman of Traffic Operations says police are looking for a white Toyota Hilux, with a white tub tray, displaying a “P” plate on the back window.

“We believe the right hand side of the rear of the Hilux would have sustained damage in the collision,” he says.

“If you were driving that vehicle, or were a passenger in that vehicle, you need to come forward and make contact with police.”

Anyone who may have witnessed the collision or anyone who may be able to identify the driver can contact 1800 333000 or via the ACT Crime Stoppers website using quote reference 6138400.
