Crash stops traffic
A TWO vehicle crash stopped traffic in both directions for about half an hour on Shute Harbour Road, Cannon Valley on Sunday afternoon.
The incident, which happened at 3.15pm outside Plants Whitsunday, resulted in two drivers and four children taken to the Proserpine Hospital.
Whitsunday Police senior constable Ian Nichols reported that a Hilux utility, travelling east, pulled over on the left-hand side of the road to let a motorbike pass then did a u-turn.
The second car travelling west towards Proserpine – a Ford Falcon with four children as passengers – crashed into it.
“The other vehicle [Ford] did four flip rollovers and then landed back on its wheels,” Constable Nichols said.
The driver of the Hilux utility was charged with driving without due care and attention.
