PHOTOS | Young driver OK as car upturned at Kemps Creek

This was the scene on the side of Mamre Road this morning as drivers were making their way to work through Kemps Creek.

A young man in his 20s had suddenly veered off the road, apparently losing control of the car he was driving, which rolled onto its bonnet.

He had been driving south, towards Liverpool. The accident occurred a few minutes north of the intersection with Gunners Lane.

He was able to crawl out of the upturned car uninjured.

Police arrived and spoke to him. An officer said the driver would be breath-tested. There was no suggestion that he had been drinking.

The speed limit on that stretch of road is 80 km/h and there is no suggestion that the man had been speeding.

The driver was clearly dazed and shaken and spent some time on his mobile phone as police waited to speak to him.

A police officer said no one had been injured and that no other cars were involved. The driver had been travelling alone.

“I saw it happen and stopped to see is he was OK,” said Jeffrey Carroll, of Kingswood, who had been driving immediately behind the car which crashed.

“I was really surprised to see it happen. He took two trees out and then his car flipped over.”

Mr Carroll said it would’ve happened about 9.05am.

Four police cars and a police van arrived at the scene separately over the next 30 minutes.
