In­juries after fail­ing to give way on road

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

THERE has been an­other ac­ci­dent on the no­to­ri­ous sec­tion of Shute Har­bour Rd be­tween Gal­braith Park Dr and Abell Rd near Whit­sun­day Plaza.

One man was taken to Proser­pine Hos­pi­tal by am­bu­lance while an­other took him­self to the hos­pi­tal on Tues­day af­ter­noon.

A QAS spokesper­son said the two pa­tients pre­sented with mi­nor in­juries and were in a sta­ble con­di­tion.

The crash un­folded at 3.15pm after a car failed to give way at a stop sign.

Whit­sun­day Po­lice Sta­tion con­sta­ble Court­ney Belling­ham urged mo­torists to take more care on the road and en­sure traf­fic was clear be­fore turn­ing onto the road.

“Make sure the road is clear and make sure you stop and check be­fore you go,” she said.

There have been nu­mer­ous ac­ci­dents along this par­tic­u­lar stretch of road this year, in­clud­ing a four-ve­hi­cle prang in April and an­other mi­nor in­ci­dent in Septem­ber which re­sulted in a young man be­ing taken to hos­pi­tal.
