Townsville Bulletin - - Front Page -

TWO­drivers were lucky to walk away from a hor­rific high-speed crash at Black River yes­ter­day.

Two cars col­lided head on at the in­ter­sec­tion of the Bruce High­way and Bow­den Rd about 4.20pm.

A Queens­land Am­bu­lance spokesman said both cars were badly dam­aged and had to be towed from the scene.

But he said oc­cu­pants of both cars walked away rel­a­tively un­scathed.

The spokesman said am­bu­lance of­fi­cers had treated one per­son on the scene for a mi­nor in­jury.

Ear­lier, emer­gency ser­vices had rushed to a two-car crash out­side the Dalrymple Ho­tel.

The spokesman said the cars had col­lided on Pilkington St about 4.05pm.

He said two pa­tients were taken to Townsville Hospi­tal with mi­nor in­juries.

A Queens­land Po­lice spokesman said po­lice were in­ves­ti­gat­ing the pos­si­bil­ity that one of the driv­ers was un­der the in­flu­ence of al­co­hol dur­ing the crash.
