Crash into cliff face

A 20-YEAR-old man who suffered head injuries after crashing his car into a cliff face at the weekend will be issued with a penalty notice for driving an unroadworthy vehicle.

The accident happened at Glenfalloch on the Heyfield-Jamieson Rd south of Licola when the man lost control and crashed his four-wheel-drive into a cliff face at Devil’s Elbow.

Police said the vehicle was oversized and had bald tyres.

The driver made his way to Latrobe Regional Hospital where he received stitches to a head wound.

Police became aware of the accident after being notified by a business recovering the car, and reminded drivers that where an injury takes place as the result of a vehicle collision, police must be notified.
