Accident due to ‘sun in eyes’
TWO women were taken to Gayndah Hospital as a precaution after a single-vehicle accident 5km south of Ban Ban Springs on Wednesday morning. The driver, 17, told police the sun had been “low and bright”, causing her to hit a culvert. A semi-trailer driver stopped to assist the woman, who was delivering her passenger, 15, to the school bus. Gayndah police said car damage was minimal and hospital staff said the pair would be released after observation.
