Crazed driver tries to kill 3 of our Brissy skaters

Josh E , Chad and Dean were at a Millwood sesh this avo with another 10 or so crew , when whilst doing the long run down Lochnivar had a local resident drive his suv directly in front of them as they came down and around a mild right hander accelerating up to full speed on their own side of the road. He just turned and jamed on the brakes right in front of the trio who barely missed his car whilst riding off the road and onto the gravel and dirt verg .

the police came and were extremely sympathetic to the situation they ordered an ambulance for chad who had multiple grazes , quite severe actually . 

After a frenzied search I  found the car , took several witness with me and approached the driver in his driveway and after a "controlled" confrontation went to the police station in Ferny Grove and laid an official complaint with the view for the police to lay criminal charges

I must say the police were damned awesome and told Josh not to let the incident deter him from Skating in the future (even though we were clearly in breach of section 14;2 of the road rules...riding on a lined road)

 

one of those damned days eh ?
