Christopher Andrew McINTOSH, Chris McINTOSH

 

Christopher Andrew McINTOSH, Chris McINTOSH Bankstown policeman, Constable Chris McINTOSH recently took charge of a gleaming new patrol bike and although it is capable of hitting 125 miles an hour, represents safety for members of the public. Constable McINTOSH told last week how he chased a speeding motorist some time ago with the car reaching more than 90 miles an hour on Hume Highway between Woodville Rd and Yagoona. Constable McINTOSH was riding a bike which has since been disposed of by the Police Department. If he had had the new cycle he now rides, the chase would have been over earlier and thus danger to the public would have been reduced. The new machine is a Honda 750 of four cylinders and other car on Australian roads could out run or out manoeuvre it. Constable McINTOSH has been riding motor cycle for eight years, five of them with the Police Department. The bike is two seconds faster than the latest Phase three Falcon GTHO over a standing quarter mile and reaches 105 miles an hour from rest in 12.6 seconds. It weights about 530 pounds with large disc brake at the front and live speed gearbox.

Shortly after 9.30am on 22 September, 1973 Constable McIntosh was riding a Police Special Traffic Patrol solo motor cycle from Bankstown Police Station to Lakemba. As he was travelling along Wattle Street a panel van travelling in the opposite direction made a right turn in front of the police cycle. Constable McIntosh was unable to avoid a collision and the cycle struck the side of the van. The constable died as a result of injuries received in the collision.

 

The constable was born in 1946 and joined the New South Wales Police Force on 8 August, 1966. At the time of his death he was attached to the Traffic Branch.
