Wet weekend causes four crashes
A 16-YEAR-OLD boy has been caught drink-driving and street racing after crashing a car in the wet on Saturday.
Police say the rain led to four crashes in the Bay on the weekend – three on Saturday and one on Sunday – and are urging drivers to slow down.
The teen blew .066 after a crash at Craignish Road and Dundowran Road about 4.20pm on Saturday.
He was a learner driving unaccompanied, unregistered and uninsured when his vehicle struck another, the two believed to have been racing. The car was impounded following the crash.
Earlier that day, a number of people were injured in a two-vehicle crash at Urangan.
A 39-year-old Volvo driver allegedly failed to give way to a Hyundai Sprint containing a man, woman and three children.
Police said all passengers were in shock and several suffered neck and back pain.
The other crashes involved a car aquaplaning on a flooded road on Saturday night and a teenage driver crashing into a stationary vehicle on Sunday.
