Woman Lucky To Be Alive After Being Thrown 30m From Car
A 21-year-old woman who crashed her car on Victoria's Mornington peninsula has made a lucky escape after being thrown 30 metres from the vehicle.
The incident occurred around 9pm last night on Stoney Point Road as it is believed that the woman lost control of her Holden Commodore.
Police allege that the woman was not wearing a seatbelt as her vehicle smashed into a pole, which caused her to be ejected from the car and onto a nearby front yard.
"She was obviously in a lot of pain...everyone was just saying 'lie down, lie down, don't move'," one witness Jason Richardson said.
The woman was taken by helicopter to the Royal Melbourne Hospital having suffered serious injuries to her abdomen and limbs. She is currently in a stable condition.
The woman has not yet been interviewed by police however, her boyfriend has said that he was driving in the opposite direction and waved to her just moments before the crash.
An initial crash analysis has confirmed this statement.
