    The infamous grassy roll?

    Is the pilot now known among his mates as "Beethoven"?

    He or she has gone to get some car polish to fix those minor scratches.

    Could be diplomatic plates under the photoshop job... Would explain the driver disappearing, strange rules apply to those blue plates.

    Unusual to have diplomatic plates on such an old vehicle though isn't it?

    Single car accident, nobody hurt, car isn't blocking traffic, driver goes home to sort it out and come back later to collect the car. An every day event, I've done it myself, what's so newsworthy?

    G'day,
    not reporting an accident, leaving the scene of an accident, removing a body, littering, parking in a non parking area, the list goes on.

    Most accidents don't have to be reported, you don't have to stay there, it doesn't appear to be parked on the footpath, and I'm sure the litter will be picked up when the tow truck arrives. Commonplace stuff in rural areas.

    The excitement seems to be from an assumption that something like alcohol or crime are involved, so the driver has scapaed. Speculation, surely.

    I see clearly the reason for this crash in one photo - they swerved to avoid a golf.

    Its Canberra - we get front page stories on a new cafe opening...

    Diplomatic plates are issued to low level embassy staff as well, so plenty of them on old or cheap cars.

    It's uncalled for to refer to an officer of law as such.

    Even if he did step onto the roadway after taking a Radar gun reading.

    Nah can't be, who in Canberra would swerve to avoid running over a law officer, particularly if they were on diplomatic plates. I trust that Haakon will ferret out the "warts and all" story and it is Canberra. by the way some used to call Lawyers goofs, but not me, I had more esoteric words....

    Never happened - do your job properly and the guilty usually plead guilty, and sometimes if your lawyer can do a good plea, a judge will be lenient, but this is not what this thread is about, lets not pre-judge any more than we have already, but Haakon did set the scene for some speculation. But all is just idle guessing, and I suppose if the driver was a frogger, we'd have had a sheepish reply by now....or swerved to avoid a black dog, wombat, kangaroo, the possibilities are endless.

    Or possibly the driver simply lost control of the vehicle. Reason not stated or able to ascertained. I doubt any sleep will be lost by anyone other than the owner of the vehicle.

    Well, looking at what was left behind, we can probably say they do not "have wood" at present. Nor irons.

    Back in the day in NSW, confessions were often beaten out I believe.
