Bund­aberg Pa­trol Group busy at crash

Isis Town and Country - - News -

BE­TWEEN 6.30am and 12.30pm last Mon­day, Bund­aberg Pa­trol Group of­fi­cers at­tended 19 traf­fic in­ci­dents.

These in­cluded two crashes in­volv­ing a cane train/truck.

A truck col­lided with a cane train on Knock­roe Rd shortly be­fore 10am.

No per­son was in­jured. Cane bins left the rails, re­quir­ing heavy ma­chin­ery to lift them back on track.

There were in­ci­dents on the Bruce High­way at Tak­il­beran and South Isis; Knock­roe Rd, North Isis; and Childers Rd, El­liott.

Po­lice said they were not sure what the big rush was or the rea­son why this was hap­pen­ing all at once, and asked ev­ery­one to slow down.

Speed lim­its were there for a rea­son, to keep ev­ery­one safe, po­lice said.

“Lights and signs are also in place for a rea­son, again to keep ev­ery­one safe.”

Cane trains op­er­ate 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
