A 23-year-old Broome man has been charged with two driving offences after allegedly committing a hit-and-run along Gubinge Road at the weekend according to local Police. It is alleged a white single cab 79 series Land Cruiser struck the 29-year-old woman on Gubinge Road while she was walking home from the Broome Mardi Gras dance party at the Broome Turf Club at around 1.45am on Sunday March 5. One of side mirrors on the alleged driver’s four-wheel-drive was broken off in the collision. It is alleged the driver then fled the scene in his vehicle, leaving the victim unconscious with a broken hand and a black eye. The woman was then taken to Broome Hospital for treatment before the decision was made to fly her to Royal Perth Hospital for surgery on her broken hand. A member of the victim’s family made a post on the Broome Community Noticeboard Facebook group asking the public for any potential witnesses to come forward and provide whatever information they may have. “If anyone sees anything or can provide any information to help, please message me and, or, report to police,” she said. A man was later charged in relation to the incident with one count of Careless Driving Causing Death, Grievous Bodily Harm or Bodily Harm and one count of Driver Failed to Stop and Ensure Assistance Received After Incident Occasioning Grievous Bodily Harm. After the man had been charged the victim’s family member took to Facebook again to thank the public for their help. “[A] person has been charged. Thank you very much for everyone’s help and kind words,” she said. The alleged reckless driver is expected to front the Broome Magistrates Court on 27 March 2023.
