Another crash at ‘blue church’

Emergency services attended a three-car crash at the intersection of Tomahawk Creek Road, also known as the Timboon-Colac Road, and the Princes Highway at Nalangil yesterday.

Emergency services attended a three-car collision at a notoriously dangerous intersection west of Colac yesterday afternoon.

Police, Country Fire Authority and Ambulance Victoria officers attended a crash at the intersection of Tomahawk Creek Road, also known as the Timboon-Colac Road, and the Princes Highway at Nalangil about 12.30pm.

Constable Sam McDonald of Colac police said the driver of a silver Kia vehicle traveling north on Tomahawk Creek Road failed to give way to traffic and crashed into a Holden vehicle travelling west on the Princes Highway.

A vehicle also travelling west on the Princes Highway collided with a vehicle involved in the crash.

Leading Senior Constable Greg Hagart said the driver of the Kia vehicle was on route to Melbourne after travelling to the Great Ocean Road.

He said there were five passengers in the Kia vehicle and that paramedics took three people to Colac Hospital.

An Ambulance Victoria media spokesperson confirmed paramedics assessed two people at the scene, one being a woman in her 30s.

The spokesperson said both victims had minor injuries and were in a stable condition.

Colac and district residents can attend a community action meeting this weekend to discuss the “blue church” intersection.
