ute near miss

A ute driver has been charged following an investigation into a near miss between a car and two B-doubles in the Riverina, NSW, last week.

In the late afternoon of June 29, a Volkswagen Amarok 4WD travelling on Tumbarumba Road, Ladysmith, near Gregadoo Road, overtook a truck narrowly avoiding a head-on collision with a second heavy vehicle from the Ron Crouch Transport fleet travelling in the opposite direction.

The dramatic incident was captured on this dashcam vision below, and on the truck coming in the other direction.

Officers attached to Riverina Traffic and Highway Patrol Command commenced an investigation.

Following inquiries and a public appeal, officers attended a Rosewood property at the weekend and spoke with a 52-year-old woman.

She was issued a court attendance notice for drive manner dangerous and is due to appear at Wagga Wagga Local Court on August 18, 2021.

Her licence was also suspended.

“It’s unbelievable how they didn’t collect each other,” said a Ron Crouch Transport spokesman.

“In 25 years of running trucks it’s the scariest thing I’ve ever seen.”
