Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

THE driver of a car that trav­elled through flood­wa­ters on the Bruce High­way last Thurs­day evening man­aged to es­cape without in­jury through the pas­sen­ger win­dow be­fore his ve­hi­cle was swept away. Of­fi­cer in Charge of the Proser­pine sta­tion Act­ing Sergeant Ti­mothy Far­ran said the driver hit the wa­ter at the speed limit and aqua­planed off the road.

Mean­while on the same evening a gold Ford was found half-sub­merged on Tyree Road, Strathdickie. The oc­cu­pants had al­ready left the scene and were be­lieved to have walked out of knee-deep wa­ter.
