Cars were banked up past the roundabout as emergency crews cleared the mess off the road.

Susan said her hands were still shaking after the incident.

"He didn't want to go to hospital. And I said, "Oh, yes, you are," she said. 

She said he was still evidently "shook up" from the incident, as she understood "he wore the brunt of the impact".

Police have said they are still investigating the crash.

She said she felt a wave of relief came when she arrived to find he wasn't hurt.

“You just never know what’s around the corner,” she said. “It’s another reality check you never know what’s going to happen.”

 

Susan said the Ute was Mr Myers' "baby" and he would be devastated "that there's no way they are going to be able to fix that".
