Warnes Mercedes hit by Melbourne tramApril 11th, 2008 - 3:00 pm ICT by admin
Melbourne, Apr 11 (ANI): Former Australian off-spinner Shane Warnes black Mercedes was hit by a Melbourne tram in which the cars rear panel and tail-light was damaged.
A resident of Armstrong Street heard the accident outside his window and caught the aftermath on film.
We saw a black car swerving erratically and it almost hit a parked car, said Tim Rose.
Lo and behold, who stepped out of the car but Shane Warne, much to the shock of me and my wife, he added.
A spokeswoman for Warne said the former cricketer had been involved in an accident where a tram ran into the back of him.
Shane was amused that anyone knew about it given that it was a minor accident, the Sydney Morning Herald quoted her, as saying.
However, a spokesman for Yarra Trams said trams had right of way on roundabouts.
The driver has submitted a report but I have no knowledge of the report, the spokesman said.
Channel Nine is believed to have paid 500 dollars for the footage from Rose’s camera. (ANI)
