’Dan­ger­ous’ burnouts at site of fa­tal crash

The Advertiser - - NEWS - EL­IZ­A­BETH HENSON

PO­LICE are in­ves­ti­gat­ing a video that emerged on so­cial me­dia show­ing a car do­ing a burnout in the mid­dle of an El­iz­a­beth East in­ter­sec­tion – seem­ingly as a tribute to two teens who were killed in a mo­tor­cy­cle crash at the site on Fri­day.

The video, cap­tioned “This was for you boys”, shows a white sedan do­ing a burnout from Shan­don Court into the mid­dle of Main North Rd, to the cheers of on­look­ers.

Other cars can be seen wait­ing at the in­ter­sec­tion. Po­lice have con­demned the driver’s be­hav­iour, say­ing the video has been sent to their Traf­fic Ser­vices Branch for in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

“The be­hav­iour dis­played in the video is not ap­pro­pri­ate on pub­lic roads,” a po­lice spokes­woman said. “It is dan­ger­ous, reck­less and may lead to se­ri­ous in­juries or loss of life.”

It comes af­ter an 18-yearold Da­voren Park man and a 17-year-old An­drews Farm boy died af­ter the al­legedly stolen mo­tor­bike they were rid­ing and a car col­lided at the in­ter­sec­tion of Main North Rd and Shan­don Court just be­fore 8pm on Fri­day.

The car driver – a 46-yearold Hill­bank man – was not in­jured in the smash.
