tyre in the Toyota van
Questions over abandoned vehicle
Out-of-control caravan sends tyre from ute
hurtling through the air
Have your say
A CARAVAN accident on a major NSW highway caused a bizarre chain of
events which landed a man in hospital.
It all began when a LandCruiser hauling an Elite caravan and driven by a
70-year-old woman suddenly veered off the northbound lanes of the Hume
Highway at Yass.
The out-of-control rig careered through shrubbery and trees on the median
strip, eventually smashing into an abandoned utility.
The force of the impact sent a tyre from the ute's tray hurtling through the
air and into the windscreen of a Toyota van travelling north.
The driver, a 43-year-old from Merrylands in Sydney, suffered abdominal
injuries and was airlifted to Canberra Hospital.
Paramedics assessed the shocked caravanner and her passenger at the scene
but they were not seriously hurt.
Questions were being asked, particularly on social media, as to why the
ute had been left on the median strip after an accident two weeks earlier.
