Teens in court for alleged street race that ended in crash

TWO teenage men appeared before a Rockhampton Magistrate yesterday on charges relating to an alleged two vehicle street race on Lower Dawson Rd on September 22 in which a driver lost control and sent his car airborne before it landed on its roof.

Brodie Thomas Mudie, 18, and Marc James Wilson, 17, are both charged with one count of operating or interfering with the operation of a motor vehicle dangerously in any place and excessively speeding or taking part in an unlawful race or an unlawful speed trial.

"This is a serious offence and I invite you to get some legal representation," Magistrate Michael O'Driscoll told Wilson.

Police alleged the vehicles were speeding south along Lower Dawson Rd, Allenstown, around 7.30pm when the 18-year-old driver of one of the cars lost control.

A passenger was transported to Rockhampton Base Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Both cases were adjourned until November 11.
