A BALGOWNIE teenager will appear in court later this month after being charged in relation to a crash at a Kiama caravan park which left four people with serious injuries.
About 10.50pm on Saturday, police and other emergency services were called to the park on O’Keefe Place at Kiama following reports a car had crashed into a tent.
Upon arrival, Lake Illawarra police found two adults and two children with serious injuries. They were treated before being taken to hospital for further treatmen. A crime scene was established at the caravan park with officers from the Southern Region Crash Investigation Unit attending.
The 19-year-old Balgownie man was taken to Kiama Police Station for a breath analysis, allegedly returning a PCA of 0.174. His licence was immediately confiscated and suspended and he was released pending further inquiries.
About 4.20pm on Monday the man attended Wollongong Police Station where he was interviewed and later charged with two counts of aggravated dangerous driving occasioning grievous bodily harm, and two counts of causing bodily harm by misconduct whilst in charge of motor vehicle. He was granted conditional bail to appear at Wollongong Local Court on September 18.
