    Something similar happened to me once in the old maverick. A mate and I were towing a falcon home from Geelong on the M1. Came over a rise and all the cars in my lane had stopped behind a cop pulling someone over. It was sheer dumb luck there wasn't anyone in the middle lane when I swerved to avoid a crash. I missed the car in front by inches and I was doing 100.
    Couple of years ago coming back from Bathurst with the race car on the back, was coming down the final hill off the Blue Mountains onto the motorway, that steep left hander that leads onto the steep run down to the start of the motorway. Cops just around the corner of the left hander pulling up a truck I think from memory, there is a 'parking' bay there but traffic had slowed dramatically just around the corner and lots of traffic, I was doing under the speed limit, letting the engine brake down the hill, just managed to change to the right lane as I came around the corner otherwise I would have cleaned up a couple of cars and probably a copper as well! Lucky I had room and didn't hit the brakes! Fuck did I curse!!

      Porsche was seen on dash cam doing warp speed going passed everyone in the left lane prior.

        Doesn’t matter or have anything to do with the Porsche driver.

        even if he’s the greatest knobend in history, he didn’t kill any of the police. And I’m pretty sure most people have no fucking clue how they would react witnessing this. If he climbed a tree and threw shit at people like a monkey it would also be half excusable.

          Porsche driver's biggest concern now is telling the boss he took the GT2 out for a spin and it isn't coming back. In no way is he responsible for the deaths but sure as shit doesn't have a job.

            That footage is a month old. Same car though. Easily 200++. It was a 991 Turbo S.

            lorbek has specifically stated that car is nothing to do with them, even before the accident.

            It’s only a couple of K from where I live, we had the dogs down at the park (next to the Elgar Rd on-ramp) and heard all of the sirens heading to it at warp speed, and had specifically commented that something awful must have happened.

            there seems to be some mutterings that there’s more to the story to come out as well, and homicide squad are now investigating - is that standard for a traffic accident?

            Worst loss of life for VicPol in a single incident in their history.

              That would possibly indicate old mate in the truck may have been methed up. You’d really hope not...

              Agree re Porsche guy too - might be the worlds biggest fuckhead for doing a runner but the “Oh but he was speeding so he caused this !!!” crowd on FB have already them found guilty of murder x 4...

                  If they don't find drugs in the truckies system then the outrage era will demand an "update" to the 40kph rules.

                    Agreed. Police could have been caught up in the excitement and pulled him over wherever and not thought about it. Unlucky.

                      The press conference just on mentioned they completed a warrant at the truckies address overnight, and the items of that warrant are currently part of the investigation....

                      The Porsche driver seems to have tested positive to a roadside oral drug test, too and is known to police (has a long criminal history).

                        Porsche driver had apparently turned himself in - after apparently posting shots he took at the scene on FB

                          Sounds like this Porsche driver is a real fuckwit! He's in for a world of pain...

                            Vic cops so they'd probably shoot on sight (maybe why he's turning himself in).

                            The truck crashing isn't his fault but I'm sure they'll want to throw the book at him. Is it too long a bow to draw for them to charge him with manslaughter??

                                I think based on his behaviour they'll throw everything they can at him, along with a few accidental head knocks to the cell door bars...
