Michael Andrews’ traffic concerns in Nuriootpa unfortunately came true this week following a two-vehicle collision on Wednesday.
Fortunately no one was seriously injured.
The Second Street resident shared his frustrations about the town’s congestion, especially at Gawler Street, publicly saying, “Do we have to wait until someone is hit or killed before action is taken?”
At about 10.45am on Wednesday, the same day Mr Andrew’s story appeared in print, Nuriootpa Police and SA Ambulance were called to an accident at the junction of Gawler and Second streets.
“A Ford Falcon sedan was travelling east on Gawler Street, when a Toyota Prado travelling in the opposite direction turned right into Second Street in front of the Ford sedan,” Barossa Police senior sergeant Sven Kahl said.
As a result, a right angle collision occurred.
“The Ford sedan was moderately damaged and was towed away,” he said.
Fortunately, a Greenock woman in her 30s was uninjured.
The Toyota Prado received minor damage.
A Kapunda woman in her 70s, also uninjured, was “reported for allegedly failing to give way.”
