    From Baby dies in horrific house crash in Thornlie | PerthNow

    This lady is a friend of my sisters, she has just moved here from over east to make some more money. Her little girl was to turn 1 on May 11th. It was their only child.

    I have been told it looks like this guy could face 3 years jail.... WOW.

    That is just a tragic senseless loss!!!
    I Feel deeply for the families involved.

    Even if he does get 3 years ( which unfortunately he probably wont) it will not be enough for that family as they will live with that loss for their whole life.:cry:

    I hope his A-Hole gets plundered daily by some blokes named "BUBBA" and "CHOPPER!"

    How did Mr Lee Van Dongen hear screeching and then see the 'red car' racing up behind the 'yellow car'. The two contradict each other.
    Although it is a very sad thing to happen, it is a very one sided article with no facts at all, so I will reserve judgment until such time there is facts.

    Amazing how yet again another elderly person was involved in this accident in one way or another.

    the second a younger person in a V8 is involved they are the ones instantly at fault.

    Will wait for the police report on this one...so many times you hear witnesses saying they were going so fasssst yet the reports show they were doing the speed limit or just over.

    That section is either 50-60kms, hubby read on another article the car went airborne, so he was flying. Literally.

    He went over and seen the child, then ran. I hope that image of that innocent baby lying there all battered and bruised remains burnt in his mind for the rest of his life.

    Apparently the mother is "fine" health wise with a few bruises & scratches but heavily sedated. So horrible. Why cant people ****ing think!

    was thinking the same thing. details are very sketchy, and im guessing the driver panicked and ran. more details will be good

    Nope he ran because he knew what he had just done. Accidents happen yes but a Monaro - in the air - he's a gonner for sure. If you are driving in a 50-60 zone you can stop easy if not embedded in the car in front of you.

    He was speeding.... Dont need a "Official" report on this one people.

    Sad loss for so many and I bet if he could have his time over he would save the speeding for the drag strip or open road.

    Yeah I have to agree, he may have ran because he was in shock. As for speeding, says who? The old bloke over the road because his car was loud or some other crap the elderly make up.

    Ive seen a car get airborne and thrown upside down when a car pulled out in front of it, the car that was hit and ended upside down was doing 60...

    It is a sad loss, but before judgement is passed, its best to wait for the truth. Amazing thing is, when the truth comes out if it isn't the "hoon" at fault you barely hear about it. The last media sensationalised story in where someone was killed by a hoon driver disappeared quick when it was found that the person that was killed had turned in front of a car doing 80 km.h in a 80 km/h zone...funny that.

    vtech just kicked in y0?


    it is sad. but really old people cause accidents by taking far too long to get through intersections, failing to indicate, and they cut people off alot because they're not allways fully aware of whats going on, id say a combination of that and a idiot driver...

    Over the years of seeing damaged cars all day every day, talking at length about accidents and how they happen with panel beaters and police. Being involved in many crashes too. If he was travelling at 50 or 60 and hits a car flies through the air and and hits a house - you need more speed that 50 or 60kph simple. They report screeching of tyres before the hit. So he get the Monaro airbourne from say 25kph. Dont thinks so.

    Yes he ran from shock no doubt. Anyone would be in shock - but to run implies some level of guilt. What was he guilty from - having an accident - no, he was guilty of driving too fast of not watching the road.

    I pick too fast.

    read the article carefully. the neighbour said he heard screeching brakes, so he went outside, to see the car "speeding" and then hitting. now, that would mean that the guy giving the report must be able to move at the speed of light to get outside fast enough to see the accident, if the screeching occured immediately before that accident as youre implying, when he was still inside

    maybe he had no phone on him and ran to get help from somewhere? or saw the lynch mob after him and ran for help?
