A POSTIE was lucky to escape serious injury when his bike was sandwiched by two cars in Rosebud, Wednesday afternoon. The postie was returning to the depot about 3.30pm when he found himself sandwiched in Bayview Road. Both cars and the bike were extensively damaged.
First Constable Chris Spero, of Somerville Highway Patrol, said it was likely “multiple” charges would be laid against the driver of the green car, a 26-year-old Rye man, depending on the result of blood tests. These could include drug driving, careless driving and driving while disqualified.
Spokesman John Pyrros said Australia Post had offered the postie support after his ordeal. “He was lucky to avoid serious injury and we are thankful he’s OK,” he said.
Anyone who saw the incident is urged to call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.
