Holiday plan wrecked

A BOOVAL family was rocked out of bed early in the new year to the sound of both their cars being rammed by an out-of-control vehicle.

Mother-of-four Jo Scott said the hit-and-run driver – who slammed into their family van, causing it to skid sideways and damage her newly purchased Hyundai i30 hatch – had cost them a big insurance bill and ruined their holiday plans.

Both vehicles were parked in the driveway of the family home near the corner of Brisbane Road and Booval Street.

The crash happened about 3.30am on New Year’s Day and was witnessed by neighbours two doors down who had gallantly run out on the road in an attempt to get the offender to stop.

It sped past them and hasn’t been seen since.

“We are quite obviously distraught, as too are our children; and unfortunately the person responsible left the scene before anyone could get the licence plate number,” Mrs Scott said.

“All that we have to go by is that the driver was male and driving a white car.”

Both the Scott’s cars have been rendered undriveable.

“I hope that someone in the community will know who this person is,” she said.

“They may have noticed damage to a neighbour’s car or heard someone talking about it.”

Anyone with information can contact Booval police on 3282 1320.
