South West roads
Two accidents occurred almost simultaneously on south-west roads.
Police in the south-west were busy attending two separate accidents last night, with wild winds contributing to tougher driving conditions.
At about 6.45pm, a single vehicle accident was reported on Casterton-Dartmoor Rd, when the female driver, travelling with her six-year-old son in the backseat, missed a tight turn and ran off the road.
The woman was trapped for at least an hour, and was then airlifted to Melbourne, where she is expected to make a full recovery.
Her young son was conveyed to the Mount Gambier Hospital for assessment.
