Four ve­hi­cles in crash

Isis Town and Country - - News -

LAST Mon­day morn­ing emer­gency ser­vices from Childers, Howard and Mary­bor­ough were called to a traf­fic ac­ci­dent in­volv­ing four ve­hi­cles on the Bruce Hwy south of Childers.

Cap­tain Tim Bunn of the Queens­land Fire and Emer­gency Ser­vices said there were no se­ri­ous in­juries.

“There were mi­nor de­lays for mo­torists in the Cher­well River area as crews cleaned up the high­way,” Mr Bunn said.

The high­way was re­duced to a sin­gle lane as crews quickly cleaned up the scene.

Two ve­hi­cles were towed away from the scene of the ac­ci­dent as the dam­age was ex­ten­sive.

“It’s a re­minder for mo­torists to pay at­ten­tion in ar­eas with road­works,” Cap­tain Bunn said. “It is easy for driv­ers to get dis­tracted be­hind the wheel.

“As the school hol­i­days con­tinue driv­ers need to be more aware of their sur­round­ings as there is an in­crease of traf­fic on our roads,” he said.

The Bruce Hwy con­tin­ues to get up­grades and millions of dol­lars are in­vested into mak­ing Queens­land roads safer.

Police are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the cause of Mon­day’s in­ci­dent and asks mo­torists to be more cau­tious in road­work zones.

This week­end our roads will ex­pe­ri­ence an in­crease in traf­fic as the school hol­i­days end.
