An Adelaide hoon jailed for driving 143km/h over the speed limit has had his beloved Holden Commodore crushed as the state government sends a message to other dangerous drivers.
Tarelle Power Williams was the first South Australian to be jailed after he drove at 253km/h in a 110km/h zone while on his Learners licence earlier this year.
The 20-year-old was sentenced to a year behind bars in July under the state’s new tough hoon driving laws.
After being forced to surrender his Holden Commodore ute following his sentencing, his car has now been crushed by the South Australian government.
Police Minister Joe Szakacs said last year there were 1500 people permanently deprived of their cars.
“About two thirds of those cars were demolished,” he said. Foreign Media
