Bargara postman injured after car accident

DANIEL Dittko, a postman of 15 years has been left with arm and leg injuries following a collision with a car in Bargara.

Bargara Fire Station Captain Cain Josefksi was the first emergency responder to the smash outside of Carlyle Gardens and said it was lucky the injuries to Mr Dittko were not much worse.

Mr Joesfski said emergency crews were initially a little concerned when they arrived on scene and saw two people on the road.

But to their relief, Mr Dittko was being cared for by a registered nurse who came across the Woongarra Scenic Dr, Carlyle Ct scene.

Queensland Ambulance Officer Shannyn Bourke then tended to Mr Dittko with two officers before he was transported to Bundaberg Hospital.

"He's sustained an arm injury and a leg injury," he said.

The driver and passengers in the second vehicle, a black Ford Focus is believed to be uninjured.

Mr Dittko's brother Frank, who is also a postman, was completing his run around the corner when he received the news and headed to the scene.

"He's been a postie for about 15 years, he's been lucky so far," Frank said of his brother and boss.

Frank said his brother Daniel had just acquired the contract for the Bargara run and it was the first day on the job.

"He was learning the track, he didn't have any mail on," Frank said.
