Po­lice hunt high-speed halfwit who hit 210km/h in our town

Kyabram Free Press - - NEWS -

PO­LICE are search­ing for a ve­hi­cle that re­port­edly reached speeds of as much as 210km/h as it raced to­wards and through Kyabram at the week­end.

‘‘On Satur­day, around 3.30 pm, a ve­hi­cle was de­tected trav­el­ling at an un­safe speed along McEwan Rd, to­wards the Kyabram town­ship,’’ Cam­paspe High­way Pa­trol Lead­ing Se­nior Con­sta­ble Frank Scopel­liti said.

‘‘The ve­hi­cle reached speeds be­tween 175 km/h and 210 km/h as it ap­proached and drove through Kyabram and at the time it was deemed to be un­safe to road users for the po­lice to en­gage in a pur­suit.’’

But po­lice did say that the pur­ple Holden Com­modore VX sedan or sim­i­lar had false reg­is­tra­tion plates read­ing 1GV 7NQ.

‘‘The ve­hi­cle is very dis­tinc­tive and any in­for­ma­tion may also save lives,’’ he said.

Po­lice are con­fi­dent be­cause of the ve­hi­cle’s make and colour many peo­ple would know who owns it.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should con­tact Cam­paspe High­way Pa­trol on 5483 1500 or sub­mit a con­fi­den­tial re­port to Crime Stop­pers at www.crimestop­persvic.com.au
