NSW 2011 fatal accident - Any follow up?

Discussion in 'Politics, Laws, Government & Insurance' started by Deadsy, May 20, 2012.

  1. Another fatal accident on Putty Road reminded me of a double fatal from April 2011 in which an overtaking ute killed two riders:


    The only piece of follow up information I could find is from July 2011:


    The link no longer works, it seems the police media archives don't go that far back. I only found it since it was posted on the oroadsports forums at the time.

    Does anyone know what actually happened in this case?
  2. Funny you should mention this; in reporting today's fatality and serious injury crash, news.com.au said There have been several fatal crashes on Putty Rd at Mellong in recent years - including in November 2011 when two motorcyclists died after hitting a ute.
  3. Why wouldn't it say 'ute hits 2 riders' or am I just being paranoid?
  4. I guess it depends on who writes the reports. I don't remember the original incident, so I don't know who hit who, just passing on the way it was reported again today....
  5. I'm pretty sure they're all there somewhere, but for the life of me I can't find court records online...
  6. If you are looking at AustLII then it *I believe* doesn't have all results, only those that are notable in some way.
