Police are appealing for information following a dangerous incident not far from Austinmer Public School on Thursday May 9.
A car, believed to be a silver VE Commodore, was travelling along The Grove at Austinmer when it slammed into a parked ute, pushing the vehicle two meters and into a nearby boat and trailer.
The accident happened around 2.40pm, with a local resident saying it was lucky nobody was walking along the road at the time. “It’s crazy it happened so close to the end of school,” she says.
The silver car then left the scene, heading toward The Grove-Moore Street intersection. It has sustained significant damage, possibly to the front and passenger sides.
Anyone with information or CCTV footage of the area is being asked to contact Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000 or Wollongong Police.
