A man was lucky to escape with non-life-threatening injuries after a collision flipped his ute onto its roof in Ardmona yesterday.
Mooroopna police Leading Senior Constable Robert Slee said an Ardmona man, 36, was driving a red ute south on Ardmona Rd and a Shepparton man, 58, was driving west on the Midland Hwy when the two cars collided about 4.40
The ute flipped onto its roof and came to rest on the other side of the intersection, spraying debris and glass across the highway.
Leading Sen Const Slee said the Ardmona man was taken to Goulburn Valley Base Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The Kia was left with a smashed-up bonnet and leaking oil.
Mooroopna police, Mooroopna Country Fire Authority and paramedics attended the scene. Police directed traffic around the scene while tow-truck drivers worked to winch the ute back onto its wheels.
Leading Sen Const Slee said it was a good time to remind drivers to be vigilant at intersections.
‘‘It’s a good cautionary warning for all motorists to take care at intersections,’’ he said.
