Central Telegraph - - NEWS -

THE RACQ Capricorn He­li­copter Res­cue Ser­vice was called to Moura at 11.20am on Satur­day.

A 55-year-old Moura woman was sus­pected to have been bit­ten by a snake.

The woman was out feed­ing her horses when she felt a sharp whack on her foot, fol­lowed by lo­calised pain. Fur­ther in­spec­tion re­vealed two small punc­ture wounds on her foot, whereby she raised the alarm and her hus­band trans­ferred her straight into Moura Hos­pi­tal.

The snake was un­able to be iden­ti­fied.

The RACQ res­cue he­li­copter’s on­board in­ten­sive care paramedic sta­bilised the pa­tient be­fore trans­fer­ring her to Rock­hamp­ton hos­pi­tal for fur­ther as­sess­ment. She was trans­ported in a sta­ble con­di­tion.

A SIN­GLE-VE­HI­CLE rollover oc­curred on Fri­day, Septem­ber 22. The in­ci­dent oc­curred at 9.30pm on the Cal­vale Rd at Cal­lide Creek cross­ing. The driver was driv­ing a Mit­subishi Tri­ton dual-cab ute with five oc­cu­pants.

The driver went from a sealed road to dirt and lost con­trol of the ve­hi­cle, caus­ing the ute to roll once and end up on its side.

Po­lice put the in­ci­dent down to driver in­ex­pe­ri­ence and are con­tin­u­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tions.
