LATEST: TWO collisions involving similar circumstances at Panmure and Tower Hill at the weekend were fortunate to not result in more serious injuries.
The first accident happened at 7.15pm on Saturday night on the Princes Highway at Panmure which led to the highway being closed for 45 minutes.
A small sedan driven by a middle-aged woman heading east was attempting to turning right off Princes Highway into the Panmure Hotel car park when a Honda people mover heading in the same direction collided with the rear of the turning vehicle.
