Foreign tourists in accident on Great Ocean Road

Heavy rain that pelted the south-west on Sunday was a factor in an accident involving foreign tourists on the Great Ocean Road.

Leading Senior Constable Glenn McDuff of Timboon police said two foreign tourists were in a campervan that slipped off the side on the Great Ocean Road on a right-hand bend at Yuulong about midday during rain.

He said the campervan tipped on its side in a spoon drain but no one was injured in the accident.

The tourists were helped by passers-by and police were called to direct traffic at the accident site that was on a dangerous bend.

A Timboon tow truck was able to right the campervan and pull it out of the spoon drain.

The campervan received only minor damage and was able to be driven away, Leading Senior Constable McDuff said.
