Independent review of minor collision finds ‘no further police action’ as appropriate

An independent review into the circumstances of a minor collision involving the NSW Minister for Police and Emergency Services in The Hills area last month has found the ‘No Further Action’ outcome of the initial investigation is appropriate.

The Minister attended Castle Hill Police Station on Sunday 27 October 2019 to report a minor collision between his Lexus sedan and a Mazda utility on Windsor Road, Baulkham Hills, which occurred about 9.40am that day.

Shortly after, the 17-year-old male driver of the Mazda also attended Castle Hill Police Station and spoke to police.

No injuries were reported.

Officers from The Hills Police Area Command conducted inquiries and the drivers exchanged details.

Following media reports regarding possible additional evidence, NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller requested the North West Metropolitan Region Commander oversee an independent review into the matter.

The review, which included speaking with relevant parties, did not produce any fresh evidence, and confirmed no further police action can be taken.

Assistant Commissioner Mark Jones has briefed the Commissioner, who has endorsed the findings.
