‘Roo victim’s car goes missing
Where did it go? And who moved it? The Victorian long weekend will be remembered by one young Melbourne man with mixed feelings.
The young motorist was travelling north to Dubbo when he collided with a kangaroo just north of Jerilderie, late Saturday night.
He left his battered car on the side of the road and came in to town to seek assistance.
The tow truck driver he contacted made the trip out the road only to come back and say that the car wasn’t there!
After a few false starts, on Sunday morning the young driver was able to talk to Finley Police, who had received a report of a car partially submerged in the Billabong Creek near the golf course footbridge. It was the missing car.
How it got there is a mystery, and probably a matter for the police!
