Deadly crashes

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

NEW re­search has re­vealed driv­ers were more likely to be killed or se­ri­ously in­jured in crashes in­volv­ing a rollover, head-on col­li­sion, or when the ve­hi­cle hits an ob­ject like a tree or post. The re­port led by Monash Univer­sity and sup­ported by RACQ, an­a­lysed more than 23,000 Queens­land crashes where driv­ers were se­ri­ously in­jured or killed be­tween 2010 and 2015. RACQ said the re­search re­vealed some types of crashes im­posed three times the risk of fa­tal and se­ri­ous in­jury.
