Rude awakening in backyard crash Tessa Marshall (below) got the shock of her life when this car came crashing into her backyard Pictures: BRAD FLEET By NICOLE MILLS A WOMAN has told of her horror when she woke to find a car had smashed through her back fence and landed just metres from her home. Hospitality worker Tessa Marshall, 21, from Moulden, in Palmerston, said she heard a big crash and rushed outside to find a crumpled white sedan in her backyard about 4.30am yesterday. She said the car had been driving along Temple Tce when it smashed through the cyclone fence and landed in some trees about 7m from the house. The lights were flashing and the motor was still running, she said. I ran out and had a peek to see if there was someone inside and there was, so I told my partner to call the ambulance. Emergency services tried frantically to free the 18-year-old driver from the car before he was rushed to Royal Darwin Hospital in a critical condition. They were working pretty hard to get him out, Ms Marshall said. She said the noise was so loud that it woke her and partner Clint Thurlow, 18, and many neighbours. We just heard this big crash, she said. I thought I was dreaming, so I shook my partner to see if he heard it too. Our dryer is above the washing machine and I thought that had fallen. Parts of Temple Tce were closed until midday as police investigated the scene. Lapse on prisoner A MAN was left in a Northern Territory police cell for more than two hours without being checked despite protocols prisoners be seen every 15 minutes, a coronial inquiry has heard. Coroner Greg Cavanagh heard Terence Briscoes death at the Alice Springs watch house in January could have been prevented. Counsel assisting the coroner Peggy Dwyer said the actions of several police officers would be under scrutiny. She said CCTV footage showed Mr Briscoe, 27, was not checked between 11.30pm and 1.42am, and later was found unconscious. Had proper procedures been implemented that night, he would have been checked every 15 minutes, she said. Prisoners tried to raise the alarm but their pleas were unanswered. The inquest continues. Still 57c a week THE Darwin City Council has stuck to its guns on its $29 carbon charge. The Federal Government maintains the council should charge a maximum of 47c a week. The council charges 57c a week. And the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission doesnt doubt the councils calculations. Lord Mayor Katrina Fong Lim said: We will commence collecting the carbon price on the per tonnage that goes across our weigh bridge on July 1. Because we are liable from that day. As the guy from the ACCC said, its fair and reasonable for us to be charging. Council general manager John Banks said: We need to put in a mechanism to make sure we are capturing the amount of money, which we simply hold, and give straight to the Federal Government.
