A local family is appealing for public assistance to locate a black newer model ACT rego, Range Rover.

On Boboyan Road at around lunchtime Easter Saturday, the car was allegedly travelling towards Adaminaby in the middle of the road.

Consequently a driver in a ute had to swerve to miss them and then rolled his car 6 times.

He is currently in hospital and thankfully will be ok but does have a fractured vertebrae, a tiny brain bleed and lung contusions.

The people in the other car allegedly did NOT stop to see if the driver was okay.

Mother of the injured driver Tara Russell is appealing to the local community to help in any way they can to identify the black range rover.
