Easter crash

THE driver of a Ford Falcon ute with Victorian registration suffered a broken nose and other facial fractures after a crash on the Hume Highway.

At about 5.20pm on Monday, April 6, the Ford was travelling north on the Mittagong Bypass, Hume Highway at Mittagong.

At the time there was heavy Easter long weekend traffic travelling north, which had come to a near standstill. The driver of the Ford realised traffic had stopped and he was travelling too fast.

He braked, but the brakes locked up and the vehicle went into a skid for about 15 metres before crashing heavily into the rear of a Subaru Liberty.

The impact forced the Subaru into the guard rail before it hit the rear of a third vehicle, a silver Toyota Camry.

The driver of the Ford suffered a broken nose and other facial fractures. He was treated by ambulance at the scene. A passenger in that vehicle was treated for shock.

No other injuries were reported.

The Ford ute was a write off and the Subaru was towed from the scene with front and rear damage.

There was minor damage to the rear of the Toyota.

All drivers were breath tested with negative results.

The driver of the Ford was issued with an infringement notice.

Police remind drivers that they must exercise additional caution when travelling on freeways or highways with heavy traffic as accidents which occur while travelling at higher speeds often end in tragedy.
