Police car swerves to avoid bikies

A POLICE car had to swerve to avoid crashing into a speeding vehicle which was leading a bikie gang convoy travelling through NSW yesterday.

More than 50 Commanchero members were seen by police to be riding in formation on the New England highway at about 10am near Qurindi in the states west.

A Ford falcon travelling at more than 150km/h was seen to overtake the group of bikes on the crest of a hill and was heading towards an oncoming police car which had to swerve.

Police allege the car, one of a number of support cars with the Outlaw motor cycle gang was detected by radar to be going at 156kmh in a 100kph zone.

Senior police have refused to comment on what the group were doing travelling in such a large number in the NSW countryside.

The groups self-proclaimed leader, Mark Buddle was recently arrested on the Gold-coast and extradited to Sydney to face assault charges.

Police eventually caught the speeding vehicle and spoke to the driver who held a current Northern Territory driver’s licence.

He was issued with a court attendance notice for dangerous driving, exceed speed-over 45kmh and overtake when unsafe. His driving rights in New South Wales were suspended and he is due to appear in Tamworth Local Court on February 11 .
