The silver car was left in the ditch on the side of Padnal Bank, Queen Adelaide, at around 10.30am today (November 9).

The accident comes just two weeks after another car was left on its roof in the same ditch, trapping the driver, and nearby resident David Jermy says it won’t be too long before there is another death on the road.

“The warning signs and advisory speed limits are clearly not working,” he said. “How long will it be before there is a second fatality this year at this notorious accident black spot?”

20-year-old Jahmel Grant was killed in June this year after the car he was travelling in collided with another vehicle on Branch Bank, which runs parallel to Padnal Bank.
