Apol­ogy

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

A RE­PORT about a twove­hi­cle traf­fic crash on Page 4 of last week’s Whit­sun­day Times was in­cor­rect.

The story in­cor­rectly stated that the driver of a Hilux Util­ity had been charged with driv­ing with­out due care and at­ten­tion. This is not the case. The Whit­sun­day Times wishes to apol­o­gise to the driver and the owner of the Hilux Util­ity for the in­cor­rect in­for­ma­tion pub­lished.

The cor­rect story is that the two-ve­hi­cle crash stopped traf­fic in both di­rec­tions for about half an hour on Shute Har­bour Road at Can­non Val­ley on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 12.

The ac­ci­dent hap­pened at about 3.15pm out­side Plants Whit­sun­days.

Con­sta­ble John Bent­ley, of Whit­sun­day Po­lice, said the 46-year-old driver of a blue Ford Fal­con was trav­el­ling to­wards Air­lie Beach when he pulled over to let a mo­tor­bike pass.

Con­sta­ble Bent­ley said he then pulled out in front of a green Toy­ota Hilux, which was trav­el­ling to­wards Proser­pine.

The driver of the Ford Fal­con was charged with driv­ing with­out due care and at­ten­tion and has been is­sued with a No­tice to Ap­pear (NTA) in court.
