A wild police chase ended in a rollover on Seville Drive

Motorbike rider dies

A motorcyclist has died after being hit by an IBC falling from a ute along the South West Highway.

The accident occurred on Tuesday afternoon along the stretch of highway currently under construction between the Rails Crescent turnoffs in Darling Downs.

About 2:40pm, a red Harley Davidson motorcycle was riding southbound on the South Western Highway behind a white Toyota Hilux carrying an intermediate bulk container (IBC).

The container detached from the Toyota Hilux, causing the 61-year-old male rider to crash.

He was taken to Royal Perth Hospital with critical injuries, where he later died.

The 22-year-old driver of the Toyota Hilux was uninjured.

The road was closed for several hours while police investigated.

Major Crash investigators are urging anyone with any information relating to this incident, or anyone who witnessed this incident, to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report online via www.crimestopperswa.com.au

Police chase ends in rollover

A wild police chase through Byford and Armadale has ended in a dramatic rollover on Seville Drive.

Road Policing Group South arrested the 30-year-old male driver at the scene on Saturday.

It all started around 3.30pm when the Leda man allegedly stole a red Haval station sedan from an address in Baldivis.

Police spotted the stolen car on Mears Road in Parmelia just after 5pm, and switched on their emergency lights and sirens to indicate for the driver to stop.

Police are alleging the man failed to stop and began to speed recklessly away.

Police Air Wing tracked the red station sedan as it travelled through surrounding suburbs including, Byford, Armadale and Seville Grove, colliding with and damaging vehicles during the rampage.

The Haval rolled on the corner of Seville Drive and Braemore Street in Armadale after crashing into another vehicle.

The single occupant of that vehicle was assessed by St. John WA but thankfully required no medical attention.

After police arrested the 30-year-old driver of the Haval, he was charged with stealing a motor vehicle, reckless driving to escape pursuit by police, failure to comply with direction to stop, and driving on a suspended licence.

He will face court tomorrow in Rockingham.

Driving instructor charged with indecent assault

Police have charged a driving assessor with indecently assaulting women.

Police are alleging that during February 2024 the man indecently assaulted three women during their practical driving assessment.

The 38-year-old man from Rivervale has been charged with three counts of Unlawful and Indecent Assault.

He appeared before the Perth Magistrates Court last Thursday.

This investigation is ongoing and police are urging anyone with information relating to this matter, or any similar incidents, to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via www.crimestopperswa.com.au
