A number of cars suffer significant damage in separate crashes


Two traffic accidents yesterday will keep Illawarra and Shoalhaven smash repairers busy.

A man in his 70s escaped serious injury after a passing truck slammed into the back of his car whilst parked on the Northcliffe Drive in Berkeley.

The incident happened around 4.30pm when the parked Toyota Corolla was hit from behind.

Witnesses or anyone with dashcam footage are asked to contact Police.


Meantime, Emergency Services had to clean up a mangled mess at Old Erowal Bay yesterday after three vehicles collided on the Wool Road at Mernie Street.


A utility and 4WD suffered front-end damage while a Hyundai Getz was wrecked.


No serious injuries have been reported.
