Car loses control, hits two parked vehicles

Police are investigating whether driver error or weather conditions caused a male motorist to collide into two parked vehicles outside Stawell Regional Health on Thursday evening. 

Acting Sergeant Silas Stephens said the driver exited the Sloane Street roundabout towards the hospital when he lost control. 

One of the hit vehicles suffered significant damage to its rear wheels and was towed away. 

There were no injuries. 

Acting Sergeant Stephens reminded motorists to be aware of the weather and drive to the conditions. 

“When it rains after a long dry spell the roads are very slippery, so we ask drivers to be mindful of this,” he said.
