April 20th, 3 years since senior constable Peta Carbonneau decided to perform an illegal U-turn across double line in conditions considered dangerous and took the life of a fellow rider Luke Wilson. A summary of the case as it unfolded: The 35-year-old senior constable was charged over the death of 31-year-old Woodend man Luke Wilson on April 20, 2009. The court was told that Carbonneau, also of Woodend, crossed double white lines while performing a U-turn in fog when she hit the motorcyclist travelling south along Black Forrest Drive. Mr Wilson died at the scene. Carbonneau, a senior constable at Sunbury, was on her way to work when she realised she had forgotten a batch of cup cakes at home and decided to turn around to get them. Peta Carbonneau left the Bendigo County Court, sitting in Ballarat, a free woman on the 05th of May 2011 after the jury found her not guilty of dangerous driving causing death. To remember Luke, the injustice done to him and bring some awareness to this issue, I would like to encourage people to express their sadness in a way of kindness and sharing. I propose that on Friday the 20th of April, if possible you give or share a cupcake with an officer of the law. 20th of April National, give a Cop a cupcake day. Comments and thoughts welcome please.
