Car Accidents

Very sad news this weekend, about a horrific car accident on Centennial Avenue, where two people were killed. It was at the dangerous Centennial/Barwon/Figtree Roads intersection, but for once, this terrible junction was not to blame, speed was. Our thoughts are with the families.

There was also another accident on Burns Bay Road earlier in the week, thankfully no reports of serious injuries.
