Just before 8am on Thursday 6th June, I was traveling through the busy intersection of Princes Hwy and Breed Street on my way to Melbourne for a course. Whilst changing gears going up the hill with traffic either side, my clutch went to the floor with no ability to accelerate. I managed to just make it to the right turning lane; the turn off for Mabel Street.
Still stuck in the middle of the highway, waiting for help to arrive, I saw Thomas from Year 12 walking across the highway coming towards me.
