Girls sur­vive tent drama

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

TWO girls are lucky to be alive af­ter a ve­hi­cle crushed a tent in a Gayn­dah car­a­van park on Sun­day night.

The girl who oc­cu­pied the crushed tent was in an­other girl’s tent only me­tres away at the time.

Po­lice al­lege that the ve­hi­cle “re­peat­edly” ran over the tent in the Riverview Car­a­van Park at 11.30pm.

Po­lice have charged a 26-year-old man from the United King­dom with danger­ous op­er­a­tion of a ve­hi­cle.

Gayn­dah Po­lice said no one was in the tent and no one was hurt.

Se­nior Con­sta­ble Wyatt Telford said the sus­pect was known to the oc­cu­pants of the tent, but was not a cus­tomer of the car­a­van park.

“The girl re­sid­ing in that tent had been stay­ing with a friend nearby,” Snr Const Telford said.

“The ve­hi­cle has been seized for me­chan­i­cal in­spec­tions.”

The man is on bail, sched­uled to ap­pear in Gayn­dah Mag­is­trate Court on May 23.
