Drivers lucky to escape injury

TWO drivers escaped injury after a car accident at the Stadium Drive roundabout over the weekend.

About 6.20pm on Saturday, one vehicle was stopped at the roundabout when another came up from behind.

The driver of the rear vehicle failed to realise the vehicle in front was stationary, and so swerved to avoid a collision.

The driver clipped the back of the stopped car before going through a cyclone mesh fence.
