A 37-year-old Mooroopna driver has failed to stop at traffic lights on Napier Street, writing-off his car and causing a three-car collision. 

The incident occurred at about 10.20am at the intersection with Lyons Street, Highway Patrol Leading Senior Constable Peter Bullock said. 

“The driver was travelling southbound on Napier Street where traffic was blocked up at the Lyons Street lights,” LSC Bullock said.

“For whatever reason, he wasn’t concentrating and failed to stop.

“He’s hit the back of a white four-wheel drive which has then been rammed into the back of the car in front.

“There is not evidence that drugs and alcohol were appear to be a factor, so he’ll be spoken to about careless driving.

“The offender’s airbags were deployed so he was travelling at some rate – one of the other passengers reported he was driving at 50 kilometres per hour, and it’s a 50km zone, so there’s no allegation of speeding.”

LSC Bullock two other vehicles were “driveable” despite minor damage and none of those involved were injured.
