P-plater crashes into fence

A 17-YEAR-OLD who only had his licence a week will face Emerald Magistrate’s Court later this month charged with driving without due care and attention after he crashed into a fence.

The single-vehicle crash happened at 12.18pm on Saturday when the teenager took the right-hand turn from the Gregory Hwy into Campbellford Dve too fast and lost control.

The vehicle mounted the footpath and ended up in the fence of the Central Bike Centre.

Police said speed and inexperience were “big” factors contributing to the crash.

His Ford Falcon was extensively damaged and had to be towed from the scene.

The man was unhurt.

The P-plater had only had his licence granted the week before, on June 23.
