ACT Police are searching for a driver dressed in a banana costume and balaclava who allegedly injured a man while doing burnouts on Friday night.

Emergency services were called to Copper Crescent in Beard at around 9.10pm to reports that a man had been hit by a tire that came loose from a burning car.

The injured 21-year-old was treated by paramedics at the scene and later taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police are searching for the alleged driver of the gold Ford Falcon sedan, which is covered in graffiti.

A statement from ACT Police said they would “also like to speak to anyone who witnessed the incident, or who may have footage of the incident on their mobile phone, and who has not already spoken to police.”

In January, a fed-up ACT police officer lashed out at irresponsible burnout drivers, calling them a “subspecies of the human race”.

During the four days of the Summernats revhead festival, police confiscated 13 cars.

“If instead of a vehicle testing station we established an IQ testing station at the border, we would cut our problems in half,” Acting Inspector Mark Richardson said at the time.

“The problem is not real car enthusiasts, but idiotic tourism.”

‘They just haven’t evolved much. I think they have really stabilized as a species or subspecies of the human race.
