Cars collide in Leongatha

LEONGATHA police, ambulance and fire brigade officers attended a crash at the Anderson and McCartin street intersection in Leongatha last Friday at about 9:30am.
A Wonthaggi couple and two women from Allambee collided and it was alleged by police on scene that the Wonthaggi couple’s white Ford failed to give way from McCartin Street and then hit the oncoming Allambee couple’s grey Holden Equipe.
No motorists sustained severe injuries at the scene. Both airbags were deployed from the Wonthaggi couple’s Ford and the Wonthaggi woman was taken to Leongatha Hospital for observation.
Last Friday’s intersection crash served as a good reminder for motorists to obey road rules and concentrate at all times.
“Many people report difficulty in seeing the give way sign; but regardless, it is up to motorists to remain focussed and alert. The signs are there to be obeyed irrespective of the road layout and conditions,” Korumburra Leading Senior Constable Carl Baido warned.

Paramedic assistance: an elderly Wonthaggi woman was transported by local paramedics for observation to Leongatha Hospital following the accident in Leongatha last Friday.
