Greenacre: Police officer struck by a Mazda 3 hatchback overnight. Prior to being hit, police say the vehicle was travelling at 121km. The senior constable was taken to Concord Hospital suffering injuries to his hands and legs.
Police Statement: Police are appealing for witnesses after an officer was struck by a speeding car in Sydney’s south last night. About 7.50pm yesterday (Tuesday 5 September 2017), police attached to the Bankstown Local Area Command were conducting speed enforcement duties on Roberts Road, Greenacre. Just before 8.30pm, a car was clocked travelling 121km/h near Rebecca Road. A Senior Constable wearing an approved reflective vest held out a “Stop Police” sign and signalled for the driver to pull over with a torch. The car instead sped up to overtake a taxi and struck the Senior Constable. The officer was taken to Concord Hospital in a stable condition, suffering injuries to his hands and legs. The driver did not stop to render assistance and was last seen travelling down Roberts Road. The car has been described as a dark blue Mazda 3 hatchback. It is believed the collision caused damage to the nearside wing mirror and possible damage to bonnet of the car. Investigators are urging the driver and anyone with information to come forward.
“I wanted to write and sincerely thank you for the efficient service your team of men gave us over the days of our Office Removals last week in Sydney. Corporate Relocations in NSW are costly; you minimised our down time and conducted the move with swift military precision. It was not an easy job moving 120 of my staff from two old buildings with no lifts and staff that seemed determined to take everything they have possessed since the days they started work here, with them. Your men were also very helpful at the new offices in ensuring that people had their offices set up the way they wanted and the maps were read perfectly in the distribution of staff boxes and equipment. I personally thank you for the three back up trucks we needed to move the extra stock we did not see in our basement car park. We shall certainly recommend your firm and use you next year when we move staff and residents back after our redevelopment. Please feel free to post this on your website.”
