A police officer says an unaccompanied learner driver who crashed a car into a power pole in Shepparton yesterday was lucky to have walked away uninjured.
Shepparton police Constable Mark Grey said the crash occurred when a Shepparton boy, 16, was driving south on Colliver Rd and turning right on to Community St. Const Grey said it appeared the maroon Holden Commodore had skidded to the left of the road and crashed into the pole, extensively damaging the front of the car.
‘‘The car is a write-off. The power pole was pretty much in the centre of the engine,’’ Const Grey said. ‘‘He’s a very lucky boy to have escaped without injury.’’
Const Grey said paramedics assessed the driver after he reported minor chest pain, but the boy did not require treatment. He said police were continuing to make inquiries and no charges had been laid.
About 100 people attended an ecumenical service in Shepparton to remember those who died in the MH17 plane crash.
