Drug-dealing bomb maker killed in horror surf coast crash
A drug dealing bomb maker wanted by police has been identified as one of the men killed in a horror crash on Victoria’s surf coast.
Police confirmed Grant Rankin, 46, of Geelong, was one of two men killed in an accident after a car allegedly ran a red light in Norlane outside Geelong on Sunday night.
Investigators believe a Ford Territory was speeding when it went through a red light about 11.50pm before hitting Rankin who was travelling through the intersection in a Holden Commodore.
The driver of the Territory, a 30-year-old Corio man, died at the scene on the corner of the Princes Highway and St Georges Road. The passenger, a 37-year-old Corio man, survived the crash with non-life threatening injuries.
A police spokeswoman on Tuesday declined to say what Rankin had been wanted for.
