NSW death in custody, police pursuit


NSW: A man has been killed in a police pursuit in Sydney's north-west, in which officers say the man reversed the situation by chasing them.

But he wasn't wound up? Another one bites the dust and another innocent person is injured in another Police Force pursuit! But I believe the police version of events? Do you?

Police say they tried to stop a utility van last night in Toongabbie for a traffic offence. But when the driver failed to pull over, they chased the ute?

Road rage?

But the driver got his vehicle behind the police and pursued them instead, ramming the police car repeatedly.

The chase ended when the driver crossed onto the wrong side of Briens Road in Northmead and collided head on with another car.

Innocent man injured in police pursuit

The man's utility van exploded, burning him to death, while the driver of the car he crashed into was seriously injured.

Police underwriters? [undertakers?]

A critical incident investigation is under way and police are preparing a report for the coroner?

Another death in custody and another 'innocent man' injured in another police pursuit and taken to hospital because the driver ran into him whilst he was either chasing police? Or being chased by police?

Work that one out!

Anyway I think the police PR unit was working overtime this morning. But your guess is as good as mine.

But I honestly believe the police version of events because police don't lie?

Here are some clues!

Police pursuit death toll rises: 61 killed in 10 years

At least 61 people have died during police pursuits in NSW over the past decade, a higher toll than previously revealed.

A Herald investigation last year found that 54 people had been killed in high-speed police car chases over the 10 years since November 1994, but five more deaths have been exposed through figures obtained under freedom of information laws.

"If I Could Turn Back Time" Daily Terror, CH/7
