THE notorious Crightons Hill bends on the Strzelecki Highway just north of Leongatha was the scene of another crash on Wednesday, but police believe driver error was the cause.
A 40 year old Korumburra man was heading towards Mirboo North up the hill when he lost control of the Commodore he was driving, narrowly missing a B-double tanker when he crossed to the wrong side of the road and into an embankment.
The car bounced back onto the road and clipped one of the mud-guards on the rear trailer causing minor damage to the truck.
Enquiries are pending however the driver was issued with an infringement notice as the vehicle was deemed to be unroadworthy due to the condition of one of the rear tyres.
The road was wet due to rain and it was windy at the time of the crash, around 10.40am.
The driver was checked by paramedics but was not admitted to hospital.
CFA crews were called in to wash away the road.
Lucky to avoid serious impact
