Ute comes off second best against massive wash-out

IF THE driver of this ute wasn't feeling a bit rough after spending Easter on Fraser Island, they are now.

The dual-cab ended up in the drink after coming a cropper in a massive wash-out near Dilli Village on the island yesterday.

The family travelling in the vehicle weren't seriously hurt.

Fraser Island Towing was called to retrieve the vehicle.

While some people questioned how the driver hadn't managed to avoid the wash-out, others had some clues.

Ben Gerrand posted an image which he said showed how high the wash-out was but that vehicles travelling the direction of the ute would have difficulty seeing that.

The image of the stricken ute was posted on the Facebook Page I got bogged at Inskip Point, which has become an online shrine of photos and videos of drivers who've come to grief at Inskip, Fraser and Rainbow Beach.
