Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

ONE Proser­pine man has ex­pe­ri­enced some­thing straight out of a night­mare.

Paul An­thony Duffy, 47, was driv­ing on Shute Har­bour Rd, Can­non Val­ley around 2.45pm on Fe­bru­ary 27 when his car, driv­ing at 100kmh, left the road and flipped “a num­ber of times” be­fore stop­ping stop 150m from where it first left.

Duffy told po­lice he had “blacked out” and he “couldn’t remember any­thing”.

Plead­ing guilty to driv­ing with­out due care and at­ten­tion, he was dis­qual­i­fied from driv­ing for two months and fined $350.
