Disqualified driver charged following high-range PCA crash at Windsor

A South Windsor man, disqualified from driving until 2038, was due to appear in court on Tuesday, January 12, following a crash on Macquarie Street, Windsor.

About 4pm Monday, January 11, officers from Hawkesbury Highway Patrol received reports of a fail-to-stop crash.

Police were told a Holden Commodore crashed into the back of a utility, before driving away from the scene.

A short time later, officers located the vehicle on Mileham Street, Windsor. The Holden failed to stop when directed to by police, and a pursuit was initiated.

The pursuit was terminated a short time later when the Holden stopped on James Meehan Street. The 52-year-old driver was arrested.

The man provided a positive roadside breath test, and was taken to Windsor Police Station, where he allegedly returned a breath analysis reading of 0.219.

Checks revealed the man is disqualified from driving until 2038.

He was charged with driving with a high range PCA, not giving particulars to the other driver, not stopping in a police pursuit, driving recklessly, driving a motor vehicle during a disqualification period, disobeying a no right turn sign, and negligent driving.

The man was refused bail to appear before Penrith Local Court on Tuesday, January 12.
