Car careers off bridge

A Morwell man is in a critical but stable condition in the Alfred Hospital, after his car left the McDonald Street bridge, and landed beside the railway tracks.

State Emergency Service and Country Fire Authority crews worked to remove the man from the vehicle.

Eye-witnesses said about 11am, the man was driving east along Commercial Road when his vehicle crossed both lanes of the bridge, before crashing through fences and landing beside the railway tracks.
