An elderly man was injured in a two-car crash in Silverstream this afternoon.

The man suffered a cut to his head in the collision, during which a car carrying a mother and two children also smashed into traffic lights.

The mum and her 10-year-old son were taken to hospital to be checked, while her 4-year-old daughter was unharmed.

The crash, on the corner of Sutherland Ave and Fergusson Dr, happened about 1.15pm.

At the scene, Constable Nick Banks said it appeared a white car carrying an elderly couple had collided with the black car side-on.

‘‘Two cars have collided in the intersection and three people have been taken to hospital with varying injuries – none life-threatening.

‘‘From what I’ve heard so far, it looks like the black car was going straight through [along Fergusson Dr] and has been impacted from the white car coming from Sutherland Ave.’’

Mr Banks said two registered nurses had been some of the first people on the scene and had stabilised the injured people before the police and ambulance crews arrived.

Yes, but there should be a cap on the wage.

Only for the very lowest waged.

Not at all - survival of the fittest.
