A collision has taken place at the corner of Windermere Boulevard and Princes Highway in Pakenham around noon on Monday 29 November.

Police said a woman suffered a medical episode while approaching a red light at the intersection and was unable to stop, colliding with another car carrying a woman and a child that had right of way.

No one was injured but the driver who suffered the episode was taken to hospital as a precaution.

A passer-by who witnessed the accident stopped to provide assistance.

Pakenham Police Sergeant Stefan Schmitzer said the accident served as a great reminder to always check before entering an intersection.

“Even if you’ve got the green light, as a pedestrian you always check to make sure it’s safe,” Sgt Schmitzer said.
