Flinders St closed after trucks drives ‘straight over the top’ of luxury car
The driver of a luxury car has been lucky to escape after their vehicle was crushed by a transporter in the CBD this morning.
It’s believed the Mercedes-Benz tried to turn left on the corner of Flinders St and Exhibition St while the truck was also attempting to turn left.
The sedan’s windows were smashed out as a result of the crash.
The incident prompted VicRoads to issue a reminder: “Do not overtake a turning vehicle,” they tweeted.
Flinders St was closed for the short time for in-bound traffic.
A witness told Neil Mitchell the truck had “driven straight over the top” of the Mercedes-Benz.
