Driver’s lucky escape

AMount Gambier man had a lucky escape following a serious crash in Adelaide on the weekend.

At 2am on Sunday emergency services were called to the Britannia Roundabout at Kent Town after a Toyota station wagon that had been travelling north on Fullarton Road lost control and crashed into the pedestrian island.

This caused the car to become airborne and smash into a large gum tree in the middle of the roundabout which then flipped the car, it eventually rolled to a stop on the other side of the roundabout.

Police said the driver, a 28-year-old Mount Gambier man, amazingly managed to get himself out of the wreckage.

He was taken to hospital for treatment of minor injuries and a blood test to see if any alcohol was present in his system.

The roundabout was closed for about 2.5hrs while emergency services cleared the scene.

Anyone who witnessed the crash and has not yet spoken to police is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at or 1800 333 000.
