Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing a sin­gle car col­li­sion which saw two men hos­pi­talised with non-life threat­en­ing in­juries on Mon­day.

The driver, a 20 year-old Jer­ilderie man, was taken to Jer­ilderie Hos­pi­tal with a pos­si­ble frac­tured left wrist.

An 18 year-old pas­sen­ger, also from Jer­ilderie, was con­veyed to Al­bury Base Hos­pi­tal with a pos­si­ble back frac­ture.

An up­date on his con­di­tion was not avail­able at the time of go­ing to print yes­ter­day.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, a Ford Ranger was travelling west on Tip Rd, Jer­ilderie at 4.45pm when the driver al­legedly failed to make a slight right turn.

It caused the car to col­lide with a large gum tree. Two am­bu­lances at­tended the scene. The car sus­tained ex­ten­sive dam­age and re­quired tow­ing, ac­cord­ing to po­lice.

Po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tions are con­tin­u­ing.

A Fin­ley teenager has been charged with breach­ing bail, af­ter po­lice al­legedly spot­ted him fail­ing to com­ply with his cur­few con­di­tions on Wed­nes­day.

About 8.35pm, po­lice stopped a ve­hi­cle on Coree St, Fin­ley for a ran­dom breath test.

Po­lice said they recog­nised one of the pas­sen­gers as a male who had pre­vi­ously been im­posed with bail con­di­tions that pro­hibit him from ap­pear­ing in public from 8pm to 6am.

The con­di­tions were put in place af­ter the teen was ar­rested last month on theft charges dat­ing back to Oc­to­ber 2016 at a Fin­ley busi­ness.

He was granted bail to ap­pear in court next month.

Po­lice have is­sued a sep­a­rate court at­ten­dance no­tice for the breach, with a date for his Fin­ley ap­pear­ance to be set.

Po­lice said an­other pas­sen­ger, an 18 yearold Ber­ri­gan fe­male, also re­ceived a cannabis cau­tion af­ter al­legedly lo­cat­ing a small amount of the drug in the ve­hi­cle.
