Two crashes, four days, four in hos­pi­tal

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

TWO ac­ci­dents in four days, only kilo­me­tres from each other, on the Isis Hwy near Biggen­den have kept emer­gency per­son­nel busy.

On Satur­day morn­ing an ac­ci­dent oc­curred when a ve­hi­cle driven by a 69-year-old Glenwood man at­tempted to over­take an­other ve­hi­cle tow­ing a horse float.

Biggen­den’s Se­nior Constable Mark Bradley said dur­ing the course of over­tak­ing, the over­tak­ing ve­hi­cle and horse trailer had come to­gether.

The man and his 62-year-old fe­male pas­sen­ger were even­tu­ally freed from the over­turned ve­hi­cle be­fore both oc­cu­pants were air-lifted to Bund­aberg and Nam­bour hos­pi­tals in sta­ble con­di­tions by RACQ Caref­light he­li­copter.

On Tues­day emer­gency ser­vices at­tended a sin­gle-ve­hi­cle ac­ci­dent in­volv­ing a car and car­a­van.

The ac­ci­dent near the Mines Rd turn-off closed the high­way.

The fe­male pas­sen­ger had to be cut out of the ve­hi­cle by QFS.

Both oc­cu­pants, in their mid-50s and from New SouthWales, were taken to Bund­aberg Hos­pi­tal.

Snr Const Bradley said the cause of both ac­ci­dents was still be­ing in­ves­ti­gated.
