Driver charged after Sydney road rampage

A 61-year-old driver accused of crashing into cars, almost hitting pedestrians and sparking a police pursuit is due to face a Sydney court.

The trail of destruction through the city’s south, including six crashed cars, began about midnight on Saturday when the man’s Hyundai Getz drove on the wrong side of a Sutherland road and hit another small car, police say.

That car spun and crashed into a parked car.

The Getz crashed into another car further along East Parade when again driving on the wrong side of the road.

Witnesses from a nearby cafe surrounded the small car but were almost struck when he allegedly reversed, mounted a median strip and fled.

He then rammed a stopped vehicle four times at nearby traffic lights before police began a pursuit.

The man was pulled out of his battered car, which had stopped at an intersection in Bangor, four kilometres from the first crash.

He’s due to face Parramatta Bail Court on Saturday on charges including refusing a breath test.

Two more cars were damaged when a police vehicle responding to the incident collided with a Mazda 3.

None of the drivers or passengers in any cars were seriously injured.
