A witness to a serious three-vehicle crash south of Adelaide says a car became airborne and hit a streetlight before crashing to the ground.

Key points:

  • Traffic was blocked in all directions at the scene of the crash
  • A witness said the collision caused her house to shake
  • Major Crash police are investigating

Police and paramedics were called at about 1:40pm on Saturday to the intersection of Cross Road and Fullarton Road at Urrbrae following reports of a collision.

Major Crash investigators were still at the scene later on Saturday afternoon, and traffic was blocked in all directions.

The vehicles and a nearby fence were seriously damaged in the crash, and debris could be seen strewn across the road.

Details are yet to be released on the condition of the people in those vehicles.

Jorja Dunn said her mum was on the second level of her nearby home when she witnessed a car crash into a streetlight.

“At eye level the car was in the air,” Ms Dunn said.

“She saw the undercarriage of the car flipping and then the house shook and people were screaming straight away.

“[The driver] was airborne enough on a second storey for us to see.”

Ms Dunn said the situation was upsetting.

“I didn’t witness it but just being here to see the scene, it’s really distressing,” she said.
