Vehicle crash - Gray


It is alleged that a 58-year-old male driver of a Holden Commodore sedan was parked with hazard lights on along Temple Terrace in Gray, when a 27-year-old male driver crashed into the rear of the vehicle.

Police, NT Fire and Rescue and St John Ambulance members attended.

The 58-year-old victim was cut from the vehicle using hydraulic cutting equipment, before being conveyed to Royal Darwin Hospital as a precaution.

He suffered minor injuries and was released a short time later.

The Commodore and Toyota Hilux Forerunner both sustained extensive damage in the crash and investigations to determine the exact cause of the crash are continuing.

Territory Duty Superintendent Bruce Porter said that these drivers were lucky to escape without serious injury.

"Road safety is every drivers business and I encourage all road users to be aware of and drive to the conditions of the road and traffic at all times, so hopefully we can avoid these types of crashes.

"In this instance with the extensive damage to both vehicles, we were very lucky that no one was seriously injured or even killed" he said.
