Man somehow escapes injury

Written off: the driver of this Hyundai was fortunate to escape uninjured, after rolling down an embankment last week.

A MAN was lucky to escape an accident uninjured after his car rolled north of Leongatha last Monday.
The 50-year-old Melbourne man was travelling north on the Strzelecki Highway near Crightons Hill when he ran off the road just after 5pm.
The car rolled down an embankment, through a fence and landed on its side in a paddock.
Passers-by stopped to help the passenger get out of the car and waited with him until emergency services arrived.
Investigations are continuing into the accident, however police believe a wet road and the driver being unfamiliar with the road were contributing factors. The car was written off.
Crightons Hill is a notorious spot for car accidents, with the most recent fatality occurring there early last year.
