Isis Town and Country - - News -

MARY­BOR­OUGH’S Foren­sic Crash Unit will con­tinue in­ves­ti­ga­tions into a crash which claimed the life of 29-year-old mid­wife Me­lanie Robin­son last week.

Ms Robin­son was killed when her black SUV smashed head-on into a truck at Cher­well, near Howard, about 5.40am on Fe­bru­ary 4 as she was trav­el­ling north on the Bruce Hwy.

The 65-year-old driver of the B-dou­ble was taken to hos­pi­tal with mi­nor in­juries.

Act­ing Mary­bor­ough fire sta­tion of­fi­cer Adrian Mass­ing­ham de­scribed the crash as “noth­ing but tragic”.

“An­other tragic day on our lo­cal roads as we’ve at­tended a fa­tal ac­ci­dent in­volv­ing a heavy ve­hi­cle and a sedan,” he said.

The crash saw the high­way closed for al­most eight hours as po­lice, road traf­fic con­trol, tow-trucks, QFES and SES cleared the re­mains of both ve­hi­cles and spilled diesel fuel from the stretch of road.
