Mum and daughter survive t-bone crash into water drain

A MUM and her child were lucky enough to walk away from a dramatic crash without serious injuries about 3pm yesterday.

The 24-year-old women and her 5-year-old daughter were forced off the road and into a storm water drain after a sedan collided with their car at the intersection of Winston St and Haig St, Kirra.
