Occupants of two vehicles have been lucky to escape serious injury after they were involved in a crash in Clyde on Monday 21 September.

Emergency crews were called to the intersection of Ballarto Road and Clyde Five Ways Road about 3.30pm, to reports a van and a wagon had crashed.

Clyde fire brigade CFA lieutenant Tim Harrip said firefighters removed an oil spill and assisted police at the scene with traffic management.

Ambulance Victoria said paramedics attended about 3.45pm, however, no one required treatment or hospitalisation.

Photos showed severe damage to the bonnet of a BMW wagon, with the impact pushing the front left wheel into the wreck.

Both cars were towed from the scene.

One Fire Rescue Victoria appliance from Cranbourne fire station supported CFA at the scene.

Mr Harrip said it was lucky no one was seriously injured, adding the intersection had become a concern of late for collisions.

“With the amount of roadworks going at the moment a lot of people in a rush; they’re using the Ballarto Road intersection to cut through,” he said.

In August a man was airlifted to hospital after a Holden Commodore lost control before colliding into two vehicles on Ballarto Road.

Victoria Police has been contacted for comment.
