Two crashes, four days, four in hospital
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.
