Car suspected stolen after driver flees Coodanup crash scene

A female driver of a Holden Commodore, believed to be stolen, allegedly fled the scene of a crash in Coodanup on Monday.

About 5:15pm, emergency services were called to the intersection of Ranceby Avenue and Steerforth Drive, near the St John First Aid Training Centre, after reports a Nissan Skyline and a Holden Commodore collided.

The P-plate driver of the Nissan Skyline told Skeer Media two women were in the Commodore at the time of the crash.

He said the driver of the Commodore, a woman, ran from the scene straight after the impact, while her passenger remained at the crash.

Police arrived a short time later.

Skeer Media understands the Holden Commodore was allegedly flagged as stolen.

The driver of the Nissan and the passenger of the Holden were treated at the scene by St John Ambulance.

The P-plate driver walked away unscathed while the passenger of the Holden suffered minor injuries.

It’s understood the Nissan Skyline was turning right from Ranceby Avenue onto Steerforth Drive when the Holden Commodore, headed east, crashed into the Nissan’s side.

The impact caused significant damage to both cars, the force so strong it spun the Nissan around.

The father of the P-plate driver said his son spent weeks saving up for the car and that it wasn’t insured.

It’s unclear whether or not police have made an arrest or pressed chargers.
