23:19, Jun 11 2012

Five cars were damaged yesterday but no-one was injured when a driver pulled out into the path of another vehicle in central Queenstown.

A police spokeswoman said a 22-year-old man pulled out of a Man St parking space about noon into the path of another vehicle. The second vehicle, also driven by a man in his early 20s, struck the first car and then crashed into two parked cars while the 22-year-old crashed into another parked car.

Police were considering laying a careless use charge against the first driver.
