Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

EMER­GENCY ser­vices at­tended a sin­gle ve­hi­cle traf­fic crash on Shute Har­bour Road in Flame­tree last Wed­nes­day night. The driver and sole occupant of the ve­hi­cle was a 43-year-old Sun­shine Coast man who was trans­ported by QAS to the Proser­pine Hos­pi­tal and later air­lifted to the Townsville Hos­pi­tal in a se­ri­ous con­di­tion. In­ves­ti­ga­tions into the cause of the crash are con­tin­u­ing and po­lice have not ruled out al­co­hol or drugs be­ing a pos­si­ble con­tribut­ing fac­tor. Act­ing Se­nior Sergeant and Of­fi­cer in Charge of Whit­sun­day Po­lice Nathan Blain said the man was lucky to be alive and it was a timely re­minder for all road users to re­main vig­i­lant on the roads. He said road traf­fic was ex­pected to in­crease on all roads dur­ing the fes­tive sea­son.
