NEWS DESK Spinning into trouble A WOMAN lost control as her car spun more than 360 degrees and slammed sideways into a truck at Patterson Lakes, Monday 1 August. The truck was parked on the path leading up to the Thompson Rd bridge and workers were standing at the front ready to work on the steel barriers when the accident occurred, 10am. The truck’s tray made a “significant intrusion” into the body of the car, putting the woman, in her early 30s, in danger, SES incident controller Philip Holt said. SES crews moved the truck forward and used the jaws-of-life to cut her free. She was taken to hospital by ambulance. Police, Patterson River CFA, Ambulance and Frankston SES crews attended the scene, made more dangerous by heavy rain. All in: SES crews use the jaws-of-life to free the female driver from a damaged car on Thompson Rd. Wet weather and bald tyres may have contributed to the accident. Picture: Gary Sissons

Car into pole in wet A CAR was almost cut in half when it crashed into a pole outside Frankston Hospital in wet conditions, early Tuesday morning. A man was driving the Ford sedan with two female passengers when it skidded off Davey St, 5.30am. Frankston SES incident controller Philip Holt said the man had managed to get free by the time rescue crews arrived. He said his crew took an hour using a hand winch to prise the car from the pole to rescue the trapped passengers. “It was a good effort because there had been significant impact and a power line was down,” he said. The front seat passenger was airlifted to The Alfred hospital and the backseat passenger and driver were taken straight into Frankston Hospital. Frankston CFA and ambulance officers attended.

Frankston police station where she returned a blood alcohol reading of 0.207 per cent. The woman, of Wandong, was taken back to a Carder Av house and “left in the care of another person”.
