Five hos­pi­talised after Bruce Hwy smash

Isis Town and Country - - News | Welcome -

FIVE peo­ple were taken to hos­pi­tal after two cars col­lided at a no­to­ri­ous in­ter­sec­tion on the Bruce Hwy on Mon­day.

The ac­ci­dent hap­pened about 2.15pm just south of Childers when an el­derly man in a white Subaru Forester at­tempted to turn right into Luck­etts Rd off the high­way and drove into the path of a gold Toy­ota Camry trav­el­ling south.

Childers Po­lice Senior Con­sta­ble Josh Roberts con­firmed the driver, in his 80s, was taken to Bund­aberg Hos­pi­tal with mi­nor in­juries, as were all four oc­cu­pants of the Camry, a fam­ily.

Trevor Far­rell, who lives nearby and was help­ing di­rect traffic, said the in­ter­sec­tion was “hor­ren­dous”.

Both driv­ers were breath tested and re­turned neg­a­tive re­sults.
