Man hurt in alleged ‘street race’ EMERGENCY services have been called to extract a man from a car that crashed after being involved in what police believe was a street race. Police say that two cars were travelling alongside each other on Frankston Flinders Road, around 7.45pm 30 October. A black Honda (right) skidded off the road and crashed into a tree, trapping the 20-year-old Frankston South driver inside. The man was extracted by emergency services and taken to hospital with non life-threatening injuries. Police allege that both drivers were P platers. The driver of the second car, a black Subaru, was interviewed by police on the scene. The driver of the car which crashed has not yet been spoken to by investigators. Police say they expect to charge a man on summons with engage in a street race and other traffic offences. Somerville highway patrol acting sergeant Anthony Deason said “when I first saw the car I thought this has to be a fatality, and it was a relief to find everyone was alive. When I found out the circumstances I thought, when are these idiots ever going to learn.” Police are appealing for witnesses or anyone with dash cam footage to come forward to help with the investigation. Contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or make a confidential report at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au.
