Police are looking for driver from accident

Police are asking for assistance from the community to identify the driver who caused an accident near Gloucester on Wednesday, November 22.

Manning/Great Lakes Local Area Command posted on Facebook a call out to the community to help with information to find the driver a motor vehicle which caused a 21-year-old woman to lose control of her Astra Hatch.

The posted stated that a purple XR8 Ford Falcon sedan attempted to overtake the Astra on a blind corner over double lines, then when seeing another vehicle coming toward them, cut sharply in front of the female driver.

This caused her to brake heavily to avoid a collision, she lost control of her car and rolled on the Thunderbolts Way about a kilometre from the Scone Road intersection about 1.40pm on Wednesday, November 22.  

“The driver of the purple Falcon stopped and checked on the welfare of the young lady but then left without exchanging details,” the post states. 

The driver has been described as a blonde haired, caucasian man in his early twenties, wearing a fluoro work shirt.

“Fortunately the young lady, although taken to hospital for treatment received no life threatening injuries, but her vehicle received life ending damage,” the post continued.

“Investigating police have information that the Purple XR8 Falcon was driving at speed down Thunderbolts Way prior to the crash.”

Police are appealing to any person who may know the identity of the driver to contact Gloucester Police Station on 6558 1204 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
