Floods close highway to the north
THE Bruce Highway was closed at both Francis and Cattle Creeks last night after three cars crashed in rising floodwaters.
The first crashed happened at Cattle Creek, 10km south of Ingham, at 6.30pm when a single vehicle rolled after aquaplaning.
Two people were taken to Ingham Hospital by ambulance with minor injuries.
In the following half hour emergency crews were called to two other crashes in the same area, neither of which resulted in injury.
Last night police said the road would be closed to conventional vehicles until further notice. Trucks will be allowed through.
To check if the highway is open do not call police as this distracts them from important duties. Instead, phone 131940 or visit 131940. qld. gov. au
