Detectives are appealing for public assistance to establish the movements of a woman who died after falling from a moving utility in Sydney’s north west last month.
About 10.10pm on Thursday 25 June 2020, emergency services were called to Hambledon Road, near Maslin Crescent, Quakers Hill, after reports a woman had fallen from a moving vehicle.
The woman died at the scene.
She has since been formally identified as Yue Zhuo, a 23-year-old International student from China.
Officers from Quakers Hill Police Area Command established a crime scene and commenced an investigation into the circumstances surrounding her death.
The driver, a 27-year-old man, was taken to hospital to undergo mandatory testing.
Quakers Hill Police Area Command Crime Manager, Detective Chief Inspector Gavin Rattenbury, said police are still piecing together Ms Zhuo’s last movements.
“We know she was a rear passenger in a black Nissan Navara utility and the vehicle travelled between Quakers Hill Railway Station and Hambledon Road prior to the incident,” Det Ch Insp Rattenbury said.
“Detectives have made significant inquiries and are now appealing to anyone who saw the Nissan in the Quakers Hill area on Thursday 25 June, or has dash-cam footage of the vehicle, to come forward.
“Initial inquiries suggest her death is not suspicious but if you saw the vehicle or you recognise the photo of Ms Zhuo, you may be able to help us with our inquiries.”
Inquiries are continuing.
Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au. Information is treated in strict confidence.
