Wyndham Vale teen one of two charged following road rage incident


A 16-year-old Wyndham Vale boy was one of two people charged after an alleged road rage incident on Saturday. Police have been told the occupants of a white Ford Falcon were involved in a road rage incident with another vehicle at a fast-food store on Mount Derrimut Road, Derrimut, about 2.30am. The second vehicle left the scene following the initial dispute and was allegedly followed by the Ford. An occupant then waved a large axe out the window of the Ford and swung it towards the other car. The driver of the Ford then allegedly intentionally rammed the other car before driving away. Police located it on Vista Blvd, Fraser Rise, about 4.20am driving at dangerous speeds. The vehicle finally came to a stop in Bacchus Marsh after police deployed road spikes. A search identified a stolen number plate fixed to the front of the Ford and a large wooden-handled axe was seized from inside the vehicle. A 19-year-old Navigators man was also charged.
