Police seeking witnesses to Dromedary smash

POLICE are investigating a two-car crash on Boyer Rd at Dromedary earlier today that left both cars wrecked and saw three people taken to hospital.

Police and other emergency services were called to the scene around noon today, following a collision between a black BMW sedan and a red Toyota Camry sedan.

The emergency responders found that the drivers of both vehicles were trapped in their respective vehicles and required extrication. Assistance was provided by crews from the Tasmania Fire Service, State Emergency Service and Ambulance Tasmania.

“The driver of the BMW, a 29-year-old New Norfolk man, and the driver of the Toyota, a 30-year-old Bridgewater woman both sustained serious but non life-threatening injuries,” a police spokesman said. “The woman’s two-year-old son was not physically injured. All were transported to the Royal Hobart Hospital.”

The road was closed for several hours while police including crash investigation and forensics officers conducted investigations. “Investigations are ongoing and police would like to speak to anyone who may have witnessed the crash or witnessed the driving behaviour of both vehicles prior to the incident,” the police spokesman said. “Police also request any witnesses that may have dash-cam footage of the vehicles or the crash to come forward.”

Information can be supplied by calling Bridgewater Police on 131 444. It can also be provided by contacting Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or crimestopperstas.com.au.
