Major Crash officers are investigating a crash that occurred on Bussell Highway in Broadwater yesterday, Wednesday October 21.

At around 1:15pm, a Ford Falcon sedan was travelling east on Bussell Highway when it lost control, crossed to the incorrect side of the carriageway and collided with a stationary truck, which was parked on a gravel shoulder.

The sole occupant of the sedan, a man in his 20s, received serious injuries and was taken to Busselton Health Campus. The driver of the truck was uninjured.

Vasse resident Mike Snee commented on facebook that he had been working near the crash and heard the “awful noise” when the car collided with the truck.

“Luckiest truck driver ever, car smashed in to stationary truck while driver was underneath fixing a problem,” he said.

Investigators would like to speak with anyone who may have seen the crash, or either vehicle prior travelling in the area prior to the crash.
