Five hospitalised after Bruce Hwy smash
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.
