A Ferny Creek woman, 35, is lucky to be alive after her car rolled and crashed into trees on One Tree Hill Rd last Sunday afternoon. Belgrave Leading Senior Constable Andrew Allen said the woman, who was the sole occupant, had left home and was travelling west towards Churchill Drive when the car left the road and rolled before coming to rest between three large trees. Leading Sen-Constable Allen said the woman was taken to The Alfred hospital by ambulance with “what appeared to be minor injuries”, including some chest pain. Police are waiting to speak with the woman but speed was believed to be a factor. “It was a fine day, there were no other contributing factors at this stage,” Leading Sen-Constable Allen said. Alcohol and drugs have been ruled out.
Ferny Creek woman survives One Tree Hill Rd crash
A FERNY Creek woman, 35, is lucky to be alive after her car rolled and crashed into trees on One Tree Hill Rd yesterday.
Belgrave Leading Senior Constable Andrew Allen said the woman, who was the sole occupant, had left home and was travelling towards Churchill Drive when she lost control on a bend and rolled before coming to rest between three large trees.
Leading Sen-Constable Allen said the woman was taken to The Alfred hospital by ambulance with “what appeared to be minor injuries”, including chest pain.
Police are waiting to speak with the woman but speed was believed to be a factor.
“It was a fine day, there were no other contributing factors at this stage,” Leading Sen-Constable Allen said.
Alcohol and drugs have been ruled out.
A Melbourne African youth leader has avoided conviction over a brawl outside a high rise housing estate.
Ahmed Dini, 22, Moonee Valley Council’s youth citizen of 2007, was among four men placed on community based orders over the fight on New Year’s Eve last year.
Victoria’s chief magistrate Ian Gray urged the men on Friday to become leaders in their community rather than end up in jail.
The court heard weapons including a baseball bat and machete were used during the affray at the estate in Flemington, in Melbourne’s north.
One of the men charged over the fight suffered a machete wound to the face and was in hospital for four days.
Mr Gray said the men were at a crossroad and could choose their path.
“Your community needs good leaders and I am sure all one, two, three, four, of you could be leaders in the future,” he said.
“If you want to go down the path of fighting you will all end up in jail. That will be a tragedy for you and your community.”
One of the four men, Abdihakim Bayahow, 21, was the most seriously injured in the fight and sustained a machete wound to the face.
His lawyer Zoe Broughton said he could have been killed and will bear a scar for the rest of his life.
She urged he be given a lesser punishment than his co-accused.
But Mr Gray disagreed, placing Bayahow, Dini, Yasin Abdullahi, 22 and Husni Muse, 19 on one-year community based orders after they pleaded guilty to affray.
“This kind of activity – fighting like this, causes an enormous amount of concern and anxiety in the community,” he said.
“You can’t just have a fight because you want to have a fight in a community such as this. It is not permissible. It is unlawful.”
The men must complete 50 hours of community work as part of their punishment.
Dini, who was born in Mogadishu, Somalia, was highlighted in the film as a leader and advocate for his people.
He was proclaimed youth citizen of 2007 by a local council in Melbourne’s north, Moonee Valley.

Flemington Police joined with the Melbourne Tigers basketball team to offer residents of the Flemington Community Housing Estate a chance to see some of the country’s best basketball players close up this week.
Tigers players David Stiff, Dave Thomas, Stephen Hoare and Warrick Giddey visited the estate in the afternoon with police to hand out 150 Gaze Club tickets to the upcoming HUMMER NBL All-Star game.
The players arrived in the special Melbourne Tigers’ Hummer and chatted to the locals and handed out autographed posters. They also broke up into teams for a couple of informal games with police, residents and the Tigers all taking part to test their skills against each other.
The NBL All Star game was held on Wednesday, 12 December at 7pm at the State Netball and Hockey Centre.
During the game basketball legend Lindsay Gaze visited the attendees in the Gaze Club to give them an exclusive talk, with the Tigers players not involved in the All-Star Game also going to meet the families and sign autographs.
Constable Andrew Allen of Flemington Police said it was a great to be involved with the Tigers in such a positive initiative.
“Many of the families wouldn’t generally have the opportunity to go along to an event like this so it’s fantastic that we can help facilitate it,” Const Allen said.
“It’s also a way we can continue to build positive relationships with the local community to break down any barriers between them and police.
“Flemington Police would also like to thank the Tigers for their support in arranging the event and for organising players to come down and meet the local youth.”

Victoria Police will recruit up to 16 students for the trip of a lifetime following the announcement of a new partnership with Debney Park Secondary College and Kensington Community College.
Inspector Nigel Howard, Senior Sergeant Tony Langdon and Leading Senior Constables Glenn Birt and Shane Davies of Flemington Police will head up the trip to Kokoda in late July to coincide with the 65th anniversary of the First Battle of Kokoda on July 29, 1942.
The program was launched at Flemington Police Station at today by Chief Commissioner Christine Nixon.
Inspector Howard said the trip was aimed at teaching life and leadership skills to the Year 11 students.
“A combination of male and female students from Year 11 will embark on the trek, which is also partly aimed at getting them ready for their VCE year,” he said.
“The program came from an idea by Leading Senior Constables Glenn Birt and Shane Davies along with Constable Andrew Allen, and is a fantastic opportunity for police to work together with local youths.
“The Kokoda trek has gotten a lot of positive coverage over the past couple of years and we thought it presented an ideal opportunity for this program and its aims.”
The students who will take part in the trek are yet to be chosen and will come from a variety of different backgrounds.
“We are looking to recruit students from those who are at-risk, those who have the potential to go and be leaders in their community and those who are already high achievers,” said Inspector Howard.
“There is also quite a cultural mix in our local area so that will inevitably be reflected in the students who go on the trek.”
A training program will be completed by the students before leaving for Kokoda in order for them to be physically ready for the requirements of the trip.
Funds will also be raised by the participants, with private sponsorship already obtained to assist the program to go ahead.
“The benefits of a program and trip such as this are immeasurable with regards to the personal development of these students who are getting ready to face the challenges of Years 11 and 12,” Inspector Howard said.
“We are extremely proud to have initiated the program at Flemington Police and strongly believe this will be a life-changing experience for all those involved with the Kokoda trek.”
The Chief Commissioner will also present members of Flemington Police with their Premiers Harmony Award from the recent 2006 Victorian Awards for Excellence in Multicultural Affairs.
OLINDA Police are searching for information after a white fence was defaced over the weekend.
Leading Senior Constable Andrew Allen said that after 11pm on Friday, 21 August, someone had blotched black paint on a white fence in Hilton Road in Sassafras.
He said the part of the fence was a white pillar with an antique light on top, and that black paint had been blotched on it.
“You wouldn’t call it graffiti as such, it’s just black-on-white,” Leading Sec Const Allen said.
The property is opposite to the Ferny Creek Recreation Reserve.
