Two days, two crashes outside pub

TWO dangerous car accidents happened just outside the Kangaroo Flat Hotel in two nights this week.

The first involved a ute crashing into a parked car and pole outside the pub about 6.55pm on Wednesday.

Then, about 24 hours later, a truck clipped a car parked on the opposite side of the road.

Hotel owner David Campbell said it was lucky no-one from the pub was injured in the first incident, because the crash broke a couple of the pub's outdoor chairs. 

"People had been sitting in those chairs literally two minutes before," he said.

Mr Campbell said dangerous incidents outside the pub involving cars were not uncommon.

Patrons looking out of the window often commented “there’s an accident waiting to happen”, he said, while he also knew of lots of near misses involving pedestrians.

"I myself almost got knocked over once," he said.

"People don’t adhere to speed limits and cars and trucks go thundering through."
