Police investigate Sue’s ‘tragic’ death

Share Canberra's trusted news:

POLICE are again calling on anyone who witnessed the tragic crash on Commonwealth Avenue Bridge which killed disability advocate Sue Salthouse early last week.  

Sue died in hospital following the collision, which occurred at about 2.40pm on Monday, July 20.

Before being taken to hospital, police believe a number of pedestrians or joggers stopped to assist the rider but left the scene without talking to police. They’re now calling for those people to get in contact with them.

ACT Policing officer-in-charge of road policing, detective inspector Marcus Boorman, says the information these people have may assist in progressing the investigation.

“Whenever someone dies on the roads, police need to ascertain how and why it happened,” he says.

“I would like to stress that the people who rendered assistance in this instance are not being sought for any reason other than that they may be able to help us work out the full circumstances surrounding this tragic incident.

“I understand these people may not wish to talk about it, but they may have seen something that police have not yet been made aware of. I urge them to come forward.”

Anyone who may have assisted or who has additional information, and who has not already spoken to police should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website quoting reference number 6579817.
