Tourists end up up­side down

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

TWO young Ja­panese tourists es­caped in­jury af­ter a dra­matic rollover crash on their way to Port Dou­glas. The tourists aged 23 and 20 came to grief just south of Turtle Cove on the Cap­tain Cook High­way on Jan­uary 12 at about 7:45am.

They had been trav­el­ling from Cairns to Port Dou­glas for the day when the driver lost con­trol on a cor­ner and skid­ded, with one wheel hit­ting a cul­vert.

A ve­hi­cle head­ing southtried to avoid the spun ve­hi­cle, but bumped into it with enough force to tip it into the cul­vert, where it ended up on its roof.
