Bizarre dashcam has captured the moment a handcuffed man fell out the back of a moving police van and on to a main road.
The incident unfolded in front of shocked motorists at a busy intersection in west
Dashcam from a passing vehicle shows the man swinging open the police van’s back door while it was turning right at the intersection of Charles and Newcastle streets.
He then fell out and landed on the busy road where he continued to roll, despite being handcuffed throughout the entire ordeal.
The passing vehicle which captured the footage then drives out of the shot.
The footage was shared to the Dash Cam Car Owners Australia Facebook page, where it attracted more than 163,000 view and hundreds of shares and comments within hours.
‘Police forgot to lock the back door of there (sic) paddy wagon,’ the post read.
‘Unfortunately the dashcam didn’t captcha (sic) him running away and the police chasing him down the freeway.’
The man was captured on dramatic dash cam falling onto a busy road in Perth on Sunday
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Western Australian Police for comment.
WA police minister Michelle Roberts hopes to get a update about the incident when she meets with Police Commissioner Chris Dawson later on Monday.
‘It is clearly very disturbing…I haven’t been fully briefed on it, clearly there will need to be an investigation,’ Ms Roberts told reporters.
‘It is a very serious matter…senior police will investigate.’
‘It’s obviously clearly important that prisoners are property secured and kept safe. I don’t know whether there’s any failure in the locking the van procedure or whether there’s a mechanical fault or what the situation is at this point.’
