Vehicle rolls and the driver runs

A vehicle rolled over in a single vehicle accident near Dalgety but the condition of the driver who left the scene of the accident is unknown.

Nearby property owners discovered the vehicle on its roof in long grass on the Ironmungie Road at about 8pm and went to see if anyone was hurt.

Petrol had spilled into the long grass, and there was some blood inside the vehicle, however the driver was nowhere to be seen.

The unregistered dark green 1997 Ford Explorer was seriously damaged and obstructing the road creating a dangerous situation for other road users.

It appears the driver of the four-wheel drive vehicle failed to take the right-hand bend on the unsealed road, hit an embankment and rolled, coming to rest on its roof.

Police and the Numbla Vale Rural Fire Service brigade attended the accident and moved the vehicle off the road.
