Two men escape without injury after car crash in Thornbury

Fiery car crash in Melbourne's north.

Two Queensland men have escaped serious injury after their car crashed into a caravan, causing both vehicles to burst into flames in Melbourne’s north early this morning.

The driver was coming down Clarendon Street in Thornbury when it clipped a roundabout and crashed into a caravan and a car at around 1.00am Friday morning.

The two 24-year-old men were able to escape from their car, before the other car and caravan burst into flames.

The men were treated for minor injuries and taken to hospital.

Resident Julian Pocock told ABC News he was amazed the accident wasn’t more serious.

“We just didn’t hear any tyres, didn’t hear any braking or any tyres screeching. Heard a car and then didn’t really hear the car, just heard the bang of the car into the caravan,” he said.

“I think it was incredible nobody was hurt, but I suppose it says something about airbags and the quality of the car they were in.”

Police are now investigating what caused the crash and whether speed, drugs or alcohol were contributing factors.
