Multiple collisions

Four vehicles were involved in a crash on Windsor Road, Northmead on Friday, about 1.50pm.

Police said one motorist had stopped her car on Windsor Road, waiting to turn right into Whitehaven Road, causing another vehicle to also stop behind her.

Police said  a third car, driven by an elderly man, failed to stop in time.

Valuables stolen from car

Leave your name and number

Police say there had been too many cases recently of motorists colliding with parked cars and driving away from the scene without leaving contact details.

‘‘If you’re a driver and you hit a parked car with your car, and that driver is not in their car, you must stop at the scene and leave the following details for the owner of the other car,’’ a police spokesman said.

‘‘You must provide your name and address as the driver, the vehicle registration number and any other information necessary to identify the vehicle.

‘‘At a bare minimum, write the required details down on paper and leave under the windscreen wiper.’’

He said any motorist who failed to leave their details risked a parking infringement or being charged.
