Crash at intersection
THE notorious intersection of Shute Harbour Road and Valley Drive has claimed another traffic crash. At 4pm on April 3, a 27-year-old interstate woman driving a blue Hyundai, collided with a Nissan Navara, driven by a 36-year-old Cannonvale man. The Hyundai sustained extensive damage at the front end and the driver was issued with a Traffic Infringement Notice.
Officer in Charge of the Whitsunday Police Station, Acting Senior Sergeant Brad Teys, said turning right from Shute Harbour Road at this intersection was certainly a risk.
“There’ll come a point where Council and police may have to look at other ways of traffic control for that intersection,” he said.
