Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : April 1st 2009
8 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, April 2, 2009 MB NEWS Crash kills woman CRIME STOPPERS 1800 333 000 on the beat 1 2 1 A WOMAN has died when her car crashed into a tree in Concord on Monday night. The woman was driving her Toyota Camry south along Burwood Rd about 11.15pm when she veered off the road and hit a tree, police say. The victim, who is believed to be in her mid-30s, died at the scene. Burwood Rd was closed between Tremere and Tripod streets for a short time. Inquiries into the cause of the crash are continuing. A report will be prepared for the infor- mation of the coroner. 2 Police are appealing for witnesses to a serious two-car collision in South Strathfield earlier this month. About 12.10pm on Tuesday, March 10, police and emergency services were called to the intersection of the Hume Highway and Cosgrove Rd in South Strathfield after reports of a crash. While inquiries into the incident con- tinue, it appears that a Mazda Tribute being driven eastbound along the Hume Highway by a 71-year-old Ryde man, attempted to turn into Cosgrove Rd and collided with a Mitsubishi Triton travelling westbound on the Hume Highway. As a result the Tribute flipped on its side. A number of witnesses managed to flip the car back onto its wheels, but the 71-year- old female passenger from Ryde fell through the driver's side window onto the road. She suffered lacerations to her scalp and forehead. The driver of the Tribute and the driver of the Triton, a 33-year-old Rockdale man, both suffered minor injuries. All three were taken to Liverpool Hos- pital for treatment. Anyone who witnessed the incident who has not yet spoken to police should phone the Metropolitan Crash Unit on 9689 7370 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. Trouble with treadmills FIONA BRADY Hanna Jabbour, Janet Jabbour and Fair Trading Minister Virginia Judge at the Treadmills Safety Campaign Launch on Monday. Inset: Janet's damaged hand. A THREE-year-old Strath- field girl whose hand was badly burned by a home treadmill has helped launch a new campaign warning families about the dangers. Three-year-old Janet Jabbour needed a skin graft after the April 2008 acci- dent. Her mother Hanna had started the treadmill with- out realising that Janet had strayed away from her father and followed her into the room. The little girl's hands be- came trapped under the ma- chine's belt, leaving her with deep friction burns. She needed frequent ban- daging, a splint, weekly visits to hospital and almost one year later the treatment is still continuing. Her mother was so upset by the accident that she has shared her family's story to educate other parents about the dangers. At Monday's launch of the awareness campaign, Fair Trading Minister Virginia Judge said more than 100 young children in Australia have suffered serious fric- tion burn injuries because of treadmills since 2001. ''The message is clear -- children and treadmills don't mix,'' Ms Judge said. ''Even in carefully child- proofed homes, treadmills still pose a risk.'' A product safety standard for treadmills under the Fair Trading Act 1987 will come into force on June 1. Fair Trading will distrib- ute thousands of warning posters to children's ser- vices, playgroups and com- munity health and baby health centres over the next month. weekly news $149 ea $1499ea Truss Tomatoes per kg $2.99 per kg Thompson Seedless Grapes per kg $1.99 per kg Potatoes 2kg $1.00 per kg Green Beans 500g $2.98 per kg $299 $199 $199 $149 smarter shopping aldi.com.au produce prices effective 31/03/09 to 06/04/09 OPENING HOURS: See your local store or www.aldi.com.au for details.
