Injured truckie stable

A TRUCK driver whose rig plunged 13.5m into a culvert on the Carnarvon Hwy remains in Brisbane’s Princess Alexandria Hospital.

The 36-year-old Roma man is out of intensive care and in a stable condition following the June 15 crash 93km south of Rolleston in which he suffered serious head and chest injuries.

Rolleston’s Senior Constable Andrew Donohue said the crash remained under investigation.

The Dawson Hwy was closed for five hours last Thursday when the gooseneck on a load-loader trailer snapped, ramming it and its payload, a 58-tonne crane, into the bitumen on Albinia Creek Bridge.

Snr Const Donohue said road conditions were a factor in the crash.
