Faulty trailer light causes pile-up

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

TWO ve­hi­cles, one faulty-trailer and a mo­tor­bike col­lided on Cap­tain Cook High­way near Pretty Beach at 10.20am last Fri­day. A ve­hi­cle and trailer head­ing north stopped on the high­way to turn right into Pretty Beach but the tail­lights were not work­ing on the trailer and the sec­ond ve­hi­cle hit it. The col­li­sion pushed the first car on to the other side of the road where it col­lided with a south-bound mo­tor­bike head­ing home to Smith­field. The ve­hi­cles all re­ceived mod­er­ate dam­age and po­lice is­sued fines to the first car for tow­ing an un­reg­is­tered trailer and tow­ing a de­fec­tive ve­hi­cle and the sec­ond car got a tail­gat­ing fine.
