Lucky escape in rollover
Monday, 24th March, 2008
A local man has escaped serious injury after his minivan rolled on the Menindee road yesterday afternoon.
The crash happened about 25km from of the city, with local emergency services called to the crash scene at 12.30pm. Police said it appeared the driver had failed to negotiate a sweeping bend and over-corrected, causing the Toyota Hi-Ace to flip onto its side and roll several times.
It eventually landed on its wheels on the side of the road. The driver was later conveyed to hospital by ambulance suffering from a suspected punctured lung.
