Driver hits tree in Mandurang

A man has escaped injury after avoiding an oncoming car and crashing into a tree in Mandurang.

The man was driving on Pearces Road towards Nankervis Road when he moved to the left to avoid an oncoming car.

Bendigo Police Acting Sergeant Dave Sanders said the driver hit loose soil on the left hand side of the dirt road and over-corrected his car which spun and hit a tree on the right-hand side of Pearces Road.

“He just went too far left into the soft spot to avoid an oncoming car then spun and hit a tree,” Acting Sergeant Sander said.

“There are no injuries and no traffic violations. We had a few phone calls from neighbours who heard the crash.”
