Van collides head-on with car after skidding on icy road

A Perth couple were left bruised in the days before Christmas, when a van driving around a bend in the road slipped on ice and collided head-on with them.

Grant Donaldson was driving his partner Louise Thomson's car at the time of the accident.

Louise sustained compressed vertebrae as a result of the crash.

The couple said that the dashcam video that captured the incident highlighted the dangers of driving on ice.
