Teen hits car

Central Leader - - NEWS -

A teenager es­caped rel­a­tively un­scathed af­ter a bizarre col­li­sion with a car. Avon­dale po­lice Se­nior Sergeant Ross Endi­cot­tDavies says the 19-year-old is be­lieved to have been on drugs when the col­li­sion hap­pened on Mt Al­bert Rd at 10am on Satur­day. ‘‘It was enough to smash the car’s wind­screen and dent the roof,’’ he says. ‘‘But he’s got­ten up, taken off his jeans, and run away. ‘‘He was found run­ning around in his boxer shorts,’’ Mr Endi­cott-Davies says. He says the teenager’s in­juries were only mi­nor and since it is un­clear how he ended up on the road he has not been charged.
