A motorcyclist who died in a crash at Rouse Hill yesterday has been identified as a serving NSW police officer.
Constable Aaron Vidal, aged 28, was travelling home after completing his duties at Sydney City Police Area Command when he was struck by a utility about 5.45pm (Thursday 18 June 2020).
Constable Vidal attested as part of class ‘332’ on Friday 8 December 2017, after which he commenced duties as a probationary constable at Sydney City. He was confirmed as a constable in December 2018.
NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller has extended his condolences to the Vidal family on behalf of the NSW Police Force.
“My thoughts are with Aaron’s family and fiancée, as well as his current and former colleagues at this difficult time,” Commissioner Fuller said.
“Aaron was one of six siblings and worked alongside his father, Chief Inspector David Vidal, at Sydney City.
“Dave has always been incredibly proud of his son following in his footsteps and walking the beat side-by-side with him.
“He spent his entire policing career at Sydney City Police Area Command, where he has been part of the Proactive Crime Team since late last year, targeting crimes that directly impact the community.
“On two occasions he had been formally recognised for good police work by members of the community, which shows that he was held in high regard by not only his peers, but the community he served.
“Prior to joining the police force, Aaron served in the Australian Army, which further demonstrates his commitment to serving and protecting the community,” Commissioner Fuller said.
Constable Vidal’s family has requested privacy at this time.
A motorcyclist who died in a crash in Sydney’s north-west has been identified as an off-duty police officer who was expecting his first child.
NSW Police constable Aaron Vidal, 28, died on Thursday afternoon after he was struck by a ute in Rouse Hill while travelling home from work.
He leaves behind a pregnant fiancée.
Police alleged in court that 37-year-old Tommy Balla drove the ute through a red light at an intersection.
Balla appeared in Blacktown Local Court on Friday on charges of dangerous driving occasioning death and negligent driving occasioning death.
He was granted conditional bail preventing him from driving a motor vehicle and is due to appear before the same court on August 14.
NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller said in a statement Constable Vidal had been recognised within the force for his commitment to protecting the community.
“On two occasions, he had been formally recognised for good police work by members of the community, which shows that he was held in high regard by not only his peers, but the community he served,” Mr Fuller said in the statement on Friday.
Deputy Commissioner Jeff Loy said Constable Vidal worked alongside his father David, a duty officer, at the Day Street Police Station in Sydney’s CBD.
Constable Vidal had been confirmed as a constable in December 2018 and was attached to the force’s “proactive crime team“.
“He was a man of service – he was a member of the armed forces before he joined the police force and really, a 28-year-old young man on the journey of life,” Mr Loy said.
“There’s a lot of people around that young lady [Constable Vidal’s fiancée] today, also his father, and he has five other siblings – so it’s a big family.
“Police deal with tragedy and trauma but when we lose a young officer in really such a wasteful way in some respects … it really hits us in the heart.”
Police Minister David Elliott said Constable Vidal‘s passing left a significant mark on the police community.
“Mr Vidal was a dearly valued and loved member of the Sydney City Police Area Command since graduating in 2017, and worked alongside his father, Chief Inspector David Vidal,” Mr Elliott said in a statement.
“Both had previously served in the Australian Army and, as proud veterans, continued to serve the community as members of the NSW Police Force.”
Ute driver bailed over crash that killed young NSW police officer
Rouse Hill: Police, in their own words, are hurting tonight after a promising young officer was killed in a crash on his way home from work.
Remembered as an ‘outstanding’ young man, Aaron Vidal followed in his father’s footsteps, dedicating his life to the force.
The driver who hit the 28-year-old has been charged accused of running a red light.
