Lucky to be alive

Around 5.30 last night (Tues 14 Oct), police and Department for Fire and Emergency Services responded to a traffic crash on Brand Highway in South Greenough.

Police say that preliminary indications suggested that the vehicle travelling in a southerly direction crossed to the incorrect side of the road, moved back onto the carriageway and lost control causing it to roll over several times.

The vehicle came to rest in a paddock and subsequently caught fire. According to an Everything Geraldton reader, the occupants were freed by two men who saw the car go off the road. 

The cause of the crash is yet to be determined and further investigation has been commenced by the Mid West-Traffic Enforcement Group.
