Mt Keira crash and dash caught on camera

A man involved in a hit-and-run on Mt Keira says be believes his damaged car to be a casualty of a drag racing enthusiast.

Thomas Hoang was visiting the mountain top the night of October 7 when an oncoming car lost control and skidded towards him.

In a hair-raising moment captured on Mr Hoang’s dashcam, the car crosses double lines, rotates and slams into the front of Mr Hoang’s Honda Civic. 

The vehicle did not have number plates.

“People were doing burnouts at the top of the mountain and I’ve guessing that’s what he was there for,” Mr Hoang told the Mercury. 

“He took a corner too sharp and drifted.

“If he keeps it up he's going to kill someone.”
