UPDATE: Car launches into local swimming spot

UPDATE 9.10am:The usually quiet Bucca community was abuzz last night as emergency crews rushed to a sinking car at the Bucca Crossing.

The car left the road and launched over a hill before hitting the Kolan River, with two people inside.

The crash happened at 7.37pm last night on North Bucca Rd.  

On inspection this morning, the car appeared semi-submerged at the local swimming spot with the roof and the boot of the car still visible from the river bank.

"A vehicle has failed to negotiate with a bend and has gone into the Kolan River," a South Kolan Police officer told the NewsMail this morning.

"Investigations are ongoing to determine the cause of the crash."

A Queensland Ambulance Service spokesman said there were two people assessed but only one required transport to the Bundaberg Hospital.

He was in a stable condition.

The spokesman said the other patient declined treatment or transport.

Police investigations will continue.

More to come.
