ABC Radio 774 in Melbourne reported a fatal wire rope barrier crash this morning, December 26, 2014. Please pass this email on to as many people as you can. Please send me any links to news reports, information on the circumstances of the crash and/or photos of the crash site.

The report said that a car went out of control and crashed into WRB. The driver was killed. The crash was on the Monash Freeway near Dandenong North.

Wire rope bazrrier should slow cars to a safer stop according to road authorities and WRB manufacturers. Why did this driver die?

The Motor Report article on WRBs.

The Border Mail article on the WRB crash on the Hume near Holbrook on Novemeber 6. IRG is still waiting for information from the NSW Crash Research Centre and the VicRoads Regional Manager quoted in the article.

  1. This was reported on Channel 7 news, and Channel 9.
    Footage appears here on Channel 9 video.
    Seems drug induced high speed involved; broke through wire rope barrier and stopped by pylon. Can see reasonably clearly damage to wrb in video.
    Point is, it didn't stop the vehicle, as they are supposedly designed to do!
