Council Crash Smith Street 29 March Warragul Citizen

Smashed to smithereens: The damage left after a car crashed through a council office.

Council officers narrowly escaped injury today when a car ploughed through the Baw Baw Shire’s Economic Development office on Smith Street, Warragul.

Car Smith Street Warragul Crash

None of the officers usually inside when the accident occurred at about 1PM were at their desks, but it is believed one council officer in an adjoining office suffered minor injuries when an internal wall was pushed in.

The elderly driver of the white Honda involved in the smash is not believed to have sustained any serious injuries.

The car travelled through a veranda post, door and window and came to rest at the far side of the office.

The smash destroyed desks, filing cabinets and other office furniture, two computers, council officers’ documents, and council promotional material.
