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.
