Man reverses into oncoming vehicle
A 28 year-old woman and nine year-old girl were taken to Finley Hospital on Tuesday last week after a car crash in Murray St, Finley.
A 77 year-old Finley man was reversing a Mitsubishi Magna out of a carpark shortly after 5.30pm.
He allegedly didn’t see an approaching Ford Raider being driven by a 34 year-old Finley man, and reversed into the path of the oncoming vehicle.
The cars collided, causing extensive damage to both.
The woman and child, who were both passengers in the Raider, were taken to Finley Hospital by a friend. Both sustained bruising from their seatbelts.
The Mitsubishi had to be towed from the scene.
