Police yet to speak to Port Fairy pile-up driver

AN elderly Port Fairy woman is expected to face a range of driving charges after her car hit four vehicles in the town on Wednesday afternoon.

Port Fairy’s Senior Constable Glenn McDuff said the driver was taken to hospital for treatment to lacerations and was yet to be spoken to by police officers yesterday.

The matter was still being investigated by officers but the woman was expected to be charged with a number of offences, possibly including careless driving and crossing double lines, he said. 

“It was like an AAMI ad. Fortunately it appears that no one has been seriously injured,” he said.

“Oddly enough, even though it was a series of collisions involving five cars, it was not the biggest thing to happen in Port Fairy this week,” he said referring to the annual Port Fairy Folk Festival. 

The female driver of another car had to be cut free from her badly damaged vehicle by SES members. The incident happened about 3.30pm near the Sackville-Cox streets intersection.
