Two car smash at Targo and Burnett Sts

UPDATE 10.20am: THE scene has been cleared at the intersection of Targo and Burnett Sts following a two vehicle traffic smash earlier this morning.

More to come on the condition of the two drivers.

EARLIER 7.10am: TRAFFIC is being diverted and people are in the hands of Queensland Ambulance Services following a two car smash at the intersection of Targo and Burnett Sts just before 7am this morning.

Bundaberg Police Sergeant Marty Arnold said both drivers, one male and one female appeared to be suffering from injuries.

"At the moment they're being treated by ambulance," Sgt said.

Sgt Arnold unfortunately the intersection of Targo and Burnett Sts was known for these types of crashes.

"It's a fairly bad crash zone and once again it's a case of cars either failed to stop at the stop sign or failed to give way when they've passed through the intersection," Sgt Arnold said.

"It's a fairly well marked intersection, it has stop signs on both sides and warnings on the road.

"People unfortunately still ignore those warning and this kind of thing is a result."

Sgt Arnold said the number one thing that could improve safety at the intersection was people obeying the signs.

"The stop signs are there for a reason, but people just go about their daily thing, they're in a hurry, they're running late, they take risks and unfortunately, this is what results," Sgt Arnold said.
