A driver had a lucky escape yesterday morning after his car rolled off the Bangalow Road at Bexhill and came to rest on its side in bushland.

In a remarkable escape, the driver was able to get out of his utility unaided. Police said he had been heading towards Clunes at about 10am when his car came adrift from the wet road.

An earlier accident on Dunoon Road, Modanville, blocked traffic for some time yesterday morning.

These latest accidents have prompted police to issue a reminder to drivers to take extra care on the roads, which have become slippery after the first heavy rain in a month.
