There appeared to have been a very nasty crash on Gundaroo Drive this afternoon, involving at least two cars. Does anyone have any details?
Gundaroo Drive was closed between Nudurr Drive and the new turn off to Crace (Areba Avenue?), resulting in quite large detours for traffic on this busy road.
We happened on the scene apparently after the ambulance and fire brigade had left, but there were still five police vehicles (which seemed a lot) and an ACTION minibus in attendance.
It looked bad – hopefully it wasn’t.
