Police are appealing for witnesses and dashcam vision as investigations continue into a road rage incident, where four people were injured in Sydney’s south west yesterday.
About 10.45pm (Monday 5 April 2021), emergency services were called to Henry Lawson Drive, Georges Hall, following reports of a serious assault and a crash.
Officers attached to Bankstown Police Area Command attended and were told a Honda Civic with two male occupants were travelling south along Henry Lawson Drive when they were involved in a verbal confrontation with two unknown males in a utility, while stopped at the intersection of the Hume Highway.
The ute followed the Civic along Henry Lawson Drive, forcing it off the roadway and into bushland, where it rolled onto its roof near Rebaul Road.
The driver, a 20-year-old man, and passenger, a 17-year-old male, exited the Honda and were confronted by the males from the ute, before the older man from the Honda was stabbed in the left leg.
The two men from the utility returned to their vehicle and fled the scene south on Henry Lawson Drive.
A short time later, the utility allegedly collided with a Toyota Camry and BMW motorcycle.
The ute did not stop and continued travelling north bound along Henry Lawson Drive.
NSW Ambulance paramedics treated the Honda occupants at the scene, before being taken to Liverpool Hospital, with the older man in a stable condition and the teenager suffering minor injuries.
The driver of the Camry – a 58-year-old man – suffered chest injuries and rider of the motorcycle – a 24-year-old man – suffered leg and rib injuries. They were both taken to Liverpool Hospital.
Crime scenes were established at both crash sites and detectives have commenced an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the incidents, with assistance from the Metropolitan Crash Investigation Unit.
As inquiries continue, police are appealing for public assistance to identify the men who may be able to assist with their inquiries.
