Police in Australia have arrested and charged a man with multiple offenses after he crashed his Toyota Land Cruiser into a Chevrolet Camaro in the state of New South Wales while carrying drugs and guns.
The incident happened on Saturday, December 5 and dashcam footage captured the whole thing. This video shows a red Camaro traveling in the right-hand lane, closely following a white van and passing a large truck to its left. All of a sudden, the Land Cruiser speeds down the edge of the right lane and slams into the rear of the Camaro, shunting the Chevy into the truck.
The New South Wales Police Force states that the force of the crash caused the canopy of the Land Cruiser to dislodge and for it to spill boxes onto the road filled with vacuum-sealed bags carrying roughly 47 kg (103 lbs) of marijuana and more than AU$39,000 in cash.
When authorities arrived on the scene, they searched the Toyota and also found seven firearms, ammunition and a white powder that they believed to be cocaine.
The 37-year-old man, identified as Keith Anderson, was treated for minor injuries by paramedics at the scene before being taken to Wyong Hospital for drug and alcohol testing. He was soon transported to Wyong Police Station and hit with charges that include dealing with the proceeds of crime, supplying a large commercial quantity of a prohibited drug, supplying a prohibited drug and not keeping a firearm safely.
No details have been given about possible injuries sustained by the driver of the Camaro.
