That is over 600 lbs of crystal meth.
The driver of the car has yet to be identified to public sources, but NSW police are saying that “this would be one of the easiest drug busts” they’ve ever made.
“Crashing into a police vehicle with that amount of drugs on board is somewhat unheard of—it’s an exceptional set of circumstances,” said detective chief inspector Glyn Baker.
“This fellow … has certainly had a very, very bad day.”
Shouldn’t have been mething around!

Explains his erratic driving.

The driver has been arraigned and charged with large commercial drug supply, negligent driving and the Australian equivalent of obstruction of justice (not giving particulars to police).
He is also being remanded to a correctional facility in New South Wales while police conduct a forensic investigation.
And I get nervous even when ive done absolutely nothing wrong 😬

This is a good lesson to all to not drive erratically while transporting several million dollars worth of illegal drugs.
Or something like that.
