A NSW police spokesperson said it was lucky no-one was seriously injured or killed in a two-car accident on Perricoota Rd on Monday.

A Wantirna South man, 59, was pulling out of Deep Creek Marina on to Perricoota Rd around 6.15am when the accident happened.

‘‘It’s possible the man’s vision was hampered by the rising sun,’’ the spokesperson said.

‘‘We believe the driver of the second vehicle may have seen the other car exiting on to the road and slowed down and attempted to take evasive action.

‘‘It’s very lucky no-one was killed.’’

The two drivers were taken to Echuca hospital and both cars were towed from the scene.

The Wantirna South man was treated for injuries to his hand and knee, while the other driver, a Moama man, 70, suffered lower back injuries.

The Wantirna South man has been issued with an infringement notice for failing to give way.
