Second vehicle in less than month leaves Cowra's low level bridge | Photos

A second vehicle has had the unfortunate luck of leaving the Cowra Low Level bridge.

Police reported on Monday morning a 25 year old male driver was heading west down to the low level bridge when he left the road between 8am and 8.30am.

Police believe a combination of wet weather, slippery road surface and unfamiliarity with the area caused the driver to leave the bridge.

The driver wasn’t trapped or injured and was able to extract himself from the vehicle. Police and emergency services attended and the vehicle was towed out.

Cowra Police Sergeant Rod Buhr said the incident was a timely reminder for drivers.

“Because of the prolonged dry when we do see some rain the road surfaces are extremely slippery,” he said.

“Particularly when we only get small amounts of rain, drivers need to always be careful when driving in wet conditions but even more so at the moment. The prolonged dry can cause a build up of rubber and dirt on the road causing these issues.”
