Beckenham Serious Crash Charge

Published on

Officers from the Major Crash Investigation Section have charged a woman in relation to a serious crash in Beckenham yesterday, Wednesday 13 September 2023.
About 3:55pm, a silver Hyundai i30 hatch was being driven north-west on William Street, near the intersection of Railway Parade. At the same time a pedestrian was crossing William Street.
The car and pedestrian collided with each other.
The 14-year-old male pedestrian received serious injuries in the crash, and was taken by St John WA to Royal Perth Hospital, where he remains in a serious but stable condition.
It will be alleged the driver of the vehicle involved in the crash failed to remain at the scene.
A 19-year-old woman was later arrested, and a silver Hyundai i30 hatch was seized from a location in Welshpool.
The 19-year-old Beckenham woman has since been charged with ‘Driver failed to stop and ensure assistance received after incident occasioning grievous bodily harm’, and is due to appear in Armadale Magistrates Court on Friday 13 October 2023.
