The first thought in Petra Ogden’s mind when she woke to the sound of a car smashing into a tree on her Moama nature strip Tuesday morning was ‘‘not again’’.KATHLEEN TONINI November 8, 2012 4:43am
The sound of a car smashing into two parked cars, a tree on their nature strip and through their front fence was Petra Ogden and family’s rude awakening early Tuesday morning.
By the time they got outside, at about 1am, the driver had left, leaving behind smoke and the smell of burning rubber.
The family discovered one car was written off and another had damage to its front.
Mrs Ogden said the most severely damaged car was only covered by third party insurance and the other car had changed hands on Monday, so the status of its insurance cover was still unclear.
Mrs Ogden said the tree on their front nature strip had been hit in a similar incident four months ago and her first thought when she woke up was ‘‘not again’’.
She said the street where she lived (Martin St) was quite wide and saw a fair amount of traffic.
‘‘It’s so wide, it’s a hoon paradise, apparently,’’ she said.
She is hoping someone might know about who was responsible for the damage to her property.
‘‘We think the car is so damaged that someone knows about it,’’ she said.
Deniliquin police Leading Senior Constable Peter Joice said police had located some parts of the offending car at the scene, which were being examined.
He said police inquiries were continuing and anyone with information should contact Moama police on 5482 0099 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
