Live powerline falls on car, driver hospitalised
A woman is in a serious condition after a live powerline fell onto the road, striking her car.
The 54-year-old was driving on the Sexton Hwy, southwest of Ayr, when a burning power pole caused a live power line to drop onto the road around 8pm.
Contact with the line left her with burns to her lower limbs and electrical shock.
She was transported in a serious condition to nearby Ayr Hospital, before being airlifted to Townsville Hospital for further treatment.
