Woman charged over highway near miss

A 52-year-old woman has been charged following an investigation into a near miss between a car and two trucks in the Riverina earlier this week.

Police say that just before 6pm on Tuesday, a Volkswagen Amarok 4WD travelling on Tumbarumba Road, Ladysmith, near Gregadoo Road, allegedly overtook a heavy vehicle, narrowly avoiding a head-on collision with a second heavy vehicle travelling in the opposite direction.

The incident was captured on dashcam vision.

“Following inquiries and a public appeal, officers attended a Rosewood property [on Saturday], and spoke with a 52-year-old woman,” NSW Police said in a statement.

She was issued a court attendance notice for drive manner dangerous and is due to appear at Wagga Wagga Local Court on August 18. Her licence was also suspended.
