Angry man drives straight into tree

Police were called to the scene of the crash in Hindmarsh Square where a Toyota ute crashed into a tree just after 9am on Friday opposite Maylor Street.

They say the uninjured driver, a 39-year-old man from Pooraka, was taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital to be psychiatrically assessed.

It’s believed the man had an argument with a woman in the utility as they waited at a set of traffic lights, before the woman got out of the vehicle and left.

The man then intentionally drove into a tree, police said. At no time did he drive at the woman.

Reports say the car narrowly missed a group of pedestrians before crashing into the tree in the middle of the square.

Investigations into the crash are continuing.
