Another Isis River Bridge crash

A CARAVAN jack-knifed and rolled onto its side after the vehicle that was towing it careered off the Bruce Highway and plunged down a four-metre embankment south of the Isis River Bridge at Childers yesterday.

The crash was the fourth at the Isis River Bridge in less than two months.

The male driver and his female passenger emerged unscathed, and were lucky the Sterling caravan did not come to rest on top of their Mazda Tribute.

Both vehicles sustained significant damage in the crash, which happened about 1.15pm.

Childers Police, Queensland Ambulance Service and fire and rescue personnel attended the scene.

“The crash had no injuries and no people were taken to hospital,” an ambulance service spokesman said.

Police investigations are continuing into the cause of the accident, but initial inquiries indicate the north-bound SUV failed to negotiate the S-bend about 150m south of the bridge.
