Rex Hunt’s Kangaroo Encounter
Veteran 3AW sports caller Rex Hunt is recovering after a close encounter with a kangaroo on a country road in Victoria.
The 69-year-old was on his way home from a fishing trip with a mate, when he swerved to avoid hitting the ‘roo near the township of Yea.
The car went over an embankment and ended up in a creek, leaving Hunt shaken and he told Neil Mitchell that he was ‘lucky to be alive’.
Fortunately, neither Rex nor his fishing buddy suffered any serious injuries in the incident.
Hunt returned to 3AW last year and has called more than 2,000 games over a decade’s long broadcast career.
