Girl ‘lucky’ in rollover

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - NEWS -

A young driver is lucky to have walked away un­harmed from a sin­gle ve­hi­cle rollover in Lake Clifton, ac­cord­ing to Har­vey po­lice.

Of­fi­cers were called to the crash on For­rest High­way about 2am on Septem­ber 24.

A 17-year-old Aus­tralind woman was found to be un­hurt and the at­tend­ing of­fi­cers be­lieve she may have fallen asleep at the wheel.

The woman will be sum­monsed for al­legedly driv­ing con­trary to her learner’s per­mit.

A 38-year-old Har­vey woman was ar­rested on Septem­ber 20 for breach of bail, dis­or­derly be­hav­iour in pub­lic and tres­pass.

Po­lice con­veyed the woman to Bun­bury Mag­is­trates Court where she was re­leased on bail.

She will ap­pear be­fore the Har­vey Mag­is­trates Court this month.

Dur­ing the long week­end po­lice main­tained a strong pres­ence on the road, is­su­ing 10 speed­ing fines along a sec­tion of road­works on For­rest High­way, Myalup.

Har­vey po­lice act­ing Sgt Jon Adams said mo­torists needed to re­mem­ber the road was also a work­place.

“Road work­ers de­serve to be safe while they go about their du­ties on the side of our high­ways and we will con­tinue to mon­i­tor and en­force the lim­its in th­ese zones,” he said.

Po­lice is­sued a “hefty” speed­ing ticket to a green P plate driver on Morn­ing­ton Road near Wokalup. Po­lice will al­lege the man was trav­el­ling at 114kmh, 44kmh above the speed limit.
