1 JAN­DAKOT A MAN suf­fered se­ri­ous leg in­juries af­ter jump­ing from a bridge in an un­suc­cess­ful at­tempt to evade po­lice last week. South Metro Re­sponse of­fi­cers were re­spond­ing to a tripped alarm at a Jan­dakot den­tist’s surgery about 3.30am on Au­gust 4 when they spot­ted a man about 500m from the scene. As of­fi­cers ap­proached, the man fled and jumped from the Ber­ri­gan Drive over­pass down to the Kwinana Free­way. He suf­fered leg in­juries dur­ing the fall and did not get far. Of­fi­cers caught up to him at the side of the free­way. An am­bu­lance was called to take the man to Fiona Stan­ley Hos­pi­tal for treat­ment. In­quiries are on­go­ing with po­lice aim­ing to match the sus­pect against CCTV im­ages and foren­sic re­sults.

A 19-YEAR-OLD man has been charged af­ter a fa­tal crash in Jan­dakot on Tues­day night. The Beck­en­ham man was driv­ing a dark Ford Fal­con east along

Ar­madale Road, near Tap­per Road, when it col­lided with a pole and a white Western Power Ford Ranger util­ity. The driver and his two pas­sen­gers – a 20-year-old man and an 18-year-old woman – were taken to Royal Perth Hos­pi­tal with se­ri­ous in­juries. The man died on Wed­nes­day evening. The woman is still in a crit­i­cal con­di­tion in hos­pi­tal. Po­lice charged the driver with unau­tho­rised driv­ing by a learner driver, dan­ger­ous driv­ing caus­ing death and dan­ger­ous driv­ing oc­ca­sion­ing griev­ous bod­ily harm. He will ap­pear in Fre­man­tle Mag­is­trates Court on Septem­ber 9.

A DAWESVILLE woman will ap­pear in Fre­man­tle Mag­is­trates Court af­ter al­legedly flee­ing po­lice and crash­ing her ve­hi­cle into a fence. Traf­fic en­force­ment of­fi­cers tried un­suc­cess­fully to stop the woman on Ni­chol­son Road in Lang­ford about 7pm on Au­gust 1. A short time later they

no­ti­fied that she had crashed her sil­ver Ford Fal­con into a fence at the in­ter­sec­tion of Orion Road and Mar­riott Road, Jan­dakot. Po­lice dog Na­cho tracked the woman, who had aban­doned the ve­hi­cle, hid­ing be­tween two large sheds a short dis­tance away. The 31-yearold was ap­pre­hended and charged with hav­ing no au­thor­ity to drive, reck­less driv­ing and fail­ing to stop for po­lice. She will ap­pear in court on Au­gust 26.
