Woman uninjured in car rollover on Wodonga-Yackandandah Road

A CAR driven by a Staghorn Flat woman slipped off a wet Wodonga-Yackandandah Road last night and rolled onto its roof.

Wodonga highway patrol Sen-Constable David Young said the woman, 35, was driving home from work in Wodonga when she lost control of the Mitsubishi Magna while she was rounding a right-hand bend at 7.15pm.

He said the rear of the car slipped out on the wet road, spinning the car 180 degrees before it left the roadway, hit a ditch and rolled onto its roof.

Sen-Constable Young said the woman was not injured and she was able to get herself out of the car as passing motorists stopped to help.

He said she was not speeding and the wet roads were a major factor.

He said the crash was a message to other drivers.

“Drive to the conditions of the road at the time — just because it is a 100km/h signposted road, it doesn’t mean you can still drive at 100km/h on a wet, rainy day,” Sen-Constable Young said.

“I encourage drivers to slow down and drive to the conditions.”
