Nurse furious after attack

A BUNDABERG nurse is furious after she says her life was put in danger when her car was egged on her way home from work.

After a busy evening at the Bundaberg Hospital emergency ward on Tuesday night, Jeannie Douglas-Paul thought she had fulfilled her quota of traumatic events for one day.

Instead, as she was driving along the Tallon Bridge at about 11pm, Ms Douglas-Paul said her car was peppered with eggs from occupants of an oncoming vehicle.

"I didn't know what had happened, because all I heard was a loud bang," she said.

"I instinctively ducked and realised I couldn't see where I was going, so I turned up my high beam and windscreen wipers. I spend my time helping people."

Ms Douglas-Paul said it was only when she arrived at her North Bundaberg home that she realised what had just happened.

Bundaberg Police constable Hayden Drinnen said this kind of behaviour would not be tolerated.

"People found throwing eggs, or any other items at vehicles, will quickly find themselves being charged with wilful damage or public nuisance offences," he said.

"People need to be more mindful of their actions as something as simple as this could result in a serious traffic accident.
