Weather causes havoc on roads

FIVE separate car crashes occurred in the Bundaberg region during the wet weather yesterday.

Bundaberg Police Sergeant Terry Willett said there were two crashes in Bundaberg, two in Childers and another in Bargara.

The first in Bundaberg occurred when a parked car on Bourbong Street rolled into another two parked cars about 2pm.

No one was injured in the crash.

About the same time, a car and caravan collided on Takalvan Street. Again, no one was injured.

Near Booyal, two vehicles had to be towed after they collided with a third car in a hit-and-run crash on the Bruce Highway yesterday.

Childers Police Senior Constable Donna Gay said a four-wheel drive was turning right into Old Booyal Road about 2pm, during a period of heavy rain.

A dark-coloured sedan clipped the four-wheel drive, and also collided with another four-wheel drive towing a campervan that was trying to overtake the turning car.

Nobody was injured in the crash.

At about the same time, a truck carrying mud lost its load on the Isis Highway, near the intersection of Kevin Livingston Drive about 2pm.

Debris blocked the road, with SES volunteers called out to direct traffic around the hazard until Bundaberg Regional Council could clear the highway.

Both lanes were fully open by 3.20pm.
