An unwelcome encounter with some kangaroos has meant an expensive delay for ambulances responding to a call near Stawell, in western Victoria.
An ambulance was called to pick up a patient at Halls Gap, but was damaged after hitting a kangaroo, about 15 kilometres from Stawell.
A second ambulance was dispatched to the scene.
But it too, hit a kangaroo, only about half a kilometre from the first ambulance.
A third ambulance was called and the patient, who was in a stable condition, was taken to hospital without further incident.
It is expected to cost $10,000 to repair the damage to the two ambulances.
