Wangaratta Chronicle - - News -

WAN­GARATTA po­lice have urged driv­ers to pay at­ten­tion on the road fol­low­ing a two-car col­li­sion on Mon­day af­ter­noon.

Sergeant Damian Loi­ter­ton of Wan­garatta po­lice said two ve­hi­cles were trav­el­ling east along Wil­liams Road when they col­lided at around 4.55pm.

“One ve­hi­cle was at­tempt­ing to turn right onto Ap­pin Street, and the ve­hi­cle be­hind it was trav­el­ling straight ahead,” Sgt Loi­ter­ton told the Wan­garatta Chron­i­cle.

“The driver be­hind - a woman aged in her 20s - be­came dis­tracted and ran into the car in front.”

He said the ve­hi­cle in front was driven by a woman aged in her 20s, car­ry­ing a woman in her early 50s and a tod­dler.

All four peo­ple were taken to hos­pi­tal, where they were treated for non-life-threat­en­ing in­juries. “Pay at­ten­tion when driv­ing,” Sgt Loi­ter­ton said. “Don’t let your­self be­come too dis­tracted.” Wan­garatta CFA se­nior sta­tion of­fi­cer David Brock said one fire truck and four fire­fight­ers at­tended to help po­lice clean up the scene.
