Gallery: Warrnambool highway crash follows breakwater smash

RAGLAN Parade was partly blocked yesterday afternoon following a two-car crash at a notorious intersection.

It is understood the two cars were towed from the scene after colliding at the intersection with Foster Street about 2.45pm.

The accident blocked the east-bound lane of traffic for about an hour.

No one was seriously hurt in the accident. The intersection, controlled by stop signs, has been the scene of many accidents over the years, often due to drivers rolling through the middle section of the highway and failing to come to a complete stop.

Meanwhile, a Warrnambool man suffered facial injuries after his car clipped a bollard and rolled on the breakwater yesterday morning.

The P-plate  driver, aged in his early 20s, was taken to Warrnambool Base Hospital.

Senior Constable Phil Literat, of Warrnambool police, said the car struck a bollard at high speed before rolling at 9.10am.

“Some witnesses had estimated he was travelling in excess of 100km/h,” Senior Constable Literat said.

He said investigations into the crash were continuing.
