Two dead in horrific car crash

Posted by: Paul Entwistle | 19 October, 2012 - 7:25 AM
Two people have been killed in an horrific crash in Welshpool this morning.

A taxi driver and his British tourist passenger are dead following a car crash in Welshpool early this morning. The accident happened at around 2am this morning when an allegedly stolen 4WD slammed into the taxi. The driver of the 4WD was taken to hospital.

The driver of the four-wheel-drive has been arrested and is understood to have suffered a broken leg and is in hospital.

The vehicle is believed to have been stolen several days ago and had been used in burglaries and ram raids.

It is understood police have video taken from the police helicopter and police have started a police internal investigation.

Major crash investigators have moved the vehicles and placed them on the road at the point of impact.

It appears the taxi was driving west along Leach Highway away from the airport and the four-wheel-drive was travelling south along Orrong Road.

The taxi was hit on the driver's side.

Blog comments Your Say

  • Sharks attaching people have no idea they are "doing wrong", but a recent statistical blip in the death rate has resulted in an order to destroy any sharks that venture too close to humans in their territory. I do agree with destroying vermin, such as wild dogs, that knowingly threaten humans, particularly in urban areas. If society disapproves destroying any life, such as a Buddhist society, I would condone confining such animals indefinitely to cages. The best scientific advice is that in most cases sharks probably mistake victims for seals and are not repeat offenders. However wild dogs will attack for no reason and will repeat the behavior with increased frequency until caught and destroyed or confined.
    Oops, am I writing in the wrong column?

  • I used to drive a taxi and gave it up 4 years ago. Every morning when I started work I had a prayer that I finish the shift and come back to my wife and kids. This accident is the absolute nightmare of every taxi driver, as there is nothing drivers can do about it. I am a medical student and I know how hard it is to become a doctor so for this tourist to spend many years to become a doctor of physics and for someone to take it all away in a second it is not fair at all.

  • Enough is enough of innocent lives being taken by these low lifes who flaunt the law.
    Lets hope the judicial system makes an example of this guy and impose a very harsh sentence.

  • My heart goes out to the families of the two people that were killed this morning.
    I dont know what the answer is to those that are stealing these vehicles but they must bring harsher penalties in to stop these terrible things that are occuring in Perth. Its getting out of control.
    Maybe the Government should look at overseas laws like Singapore and put them in place here as they dont seem to have much trouble over there. We are a country of softies and good law abiding citizens suffer the consequences.
