"I was going down for a sleep with our two-month-old when I heard this huge noise outside," the witness said. 

"When I came outside I saw the two cars out on the road and one car was badly damaged and there was glass and broken plastic all over the road.

"This is the second car collision on this intersection in the last month - there was a very similar incident here three weeks ago.

"This intersection seems to be quite bad for drivers."

"Maybe people are also coming from the city where there are traffic lights and lanes and more signage and directions.

"Here they have to have to figure things out for themselves more." 

Police attended the scene and breathalysed the work ute driver before leaving the scene.
