Drugs found in car after accident
CHILDERS police attended a single vehicle roll-over shortly before midnight on October 19.
Constable Joshua Roberts attended the scene and later said the incident occurred on the Isis Hwy at Golden Fleece.
“Whilst conducting investigations into the crash, police located a quantity of cannabis inside a cooler bag, and in the possession of a 26-year old Dallarnil man who was the passenger in the crash,” Const Roberts said.
The approximate weight of the cannabis was 536g, which was seized by the police.
A male was issued with a notice to appear before the court for possession of a dangerous drug.
Const Roberts said the two people were taken to Bundaberg hospital for observations and were released later that night.
Investigations into the single vehicle crash are continuing.
The Fatal Five Road Safety campaign introduced by the Queensland police say: Speeding, drink and drug driving, failure to wear a seatbelt and driving while fatigued make up the deadly five driver behaviours.
Too many Queensland drivers are being distracted whilst behind the wheel by mobile phones, sound systems, DVD players and satellite navigation, just to name a few.
Think twice before getting behind the wheel, the campaign urges.
