Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

THE re­cent wet weather has been a con­tribut­ing fac­tor to a num­ber of car crashes of late.

On Tues­day, a 27-yearold woman from Ju­bilee Pocket re­ceived mi­nor in­juries af­ter skid­ding on a wet road and crash­ing into a tree.

She was trav­el­ling along Man­dalay Rd around 9am when the ac­ci­dent oc­curred.

Mean­while the driver of a Nissan Ti­ida was lucky to walk away with just a few bruises and scratches af­ter run­ning into an SUV on Shute Har­bour Rd at Brandy Creek on Fri­day.

Although it was rain­ing at the time, it is un­known if weather played a part in the crash. No­tably, lo­cals have taken to so­cial media call­ing the turn-off to Brandy Creek Rd dan­ger­ous.

There were re­ports of another car ac­ci­dent on Val­ley Drive in Can­non­vale.

Whit­sun­day po­lice of­fi­cer in charge Se­nior Sergeant Steve O’Con­nell has urged lo­cals to take ex­tra cau­tion when trav­el­ling in wet weather.
