Road rage on freeway


MORNINGTON detectives are investigating a suspected road rage punch-up on the Mornington Peninsula Freeway, Wednesday 14 November.

A Rye man driving a Holden Commodore reportedly clashed with two men in a Mercedes sedan, one of Taylors Hill and the other of Sunshine North, after they pulled over into the emergency lane opposite the Safety Beach Country Club, 6.20am.

After the incident the Rye man was taken to the Frankston Hospital but was expected to be released late last week. The others were treated at the scene. The three men are believed to know each other.

Police later charged the men in the Mercedes with assault and drug-related offences. One was remanded in custody and the other bailed. They will appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court at a later date.

The Rye man is said to be assisting police with their inquiries.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or has dash-cam footage is asked to call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.
