Driver zero, tree three

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

A 20-year-old Cairns man lost con­trol of his mo­tor car on the Cap­tain Cook High­way and struck a tree Satur­day night at 11pm. When the man struck the tree, his ve­hi­cle bounced back onto the road­way into traf­fic which caused two other ve­hi­cles to col­lide. Two oc­cu­pants of the man’s ve­hi­cle were taken to the Cairns hos­pi­tal with mod­er­ate in­juries. Po­lice took a sam­ple of blood of the male driver. Wit­nesses stated that the man was driv­ing dan­ger­ously prior to the ac­ci­dent. Po­lice are still in­ves­ti­gat­ing what hap­pened.
