Two of the Australian officers had grabbed a car before the incident for speeding on a motorway. During this, 2 more police officers were called for assistance. All of them were standing outside the cars and suddenly a refrigerated lorry came and drove into them.
Officials claimed that this happened around 5:40 pm on Tuesday in the Eastern Freeway near Kew in Melbourne. Talking about the suspect, they added that the driver of that lorry fled the scene but was later caught by them. He is being checked for rash driving or maybe he was drunk at that moment.
The Police chief was grieved and claimed that this was one of the greatest loss in the history of Victoria’s police force. Also, the Premier of Victoria said that they have lost the ‘heroes’ and their hearts are breaking for all the four families.
