Traffic crashes keep police busy

A 21-year-old male has been issued with a notice to appear in Emerald Magistrate’s Court for driving without due care and attention after a two-vehicle crash on Monday.

The crash occurred at 3.05pm on Roberts St when the male, driving a white Toyota utility, collided with the rear of a Hyundai sedan, driven by a 49-year-old woman.

The woman was travelling east on Roberts St and was stopped at the intersection of Pill St to turn right.

The woman was treated at the scene for shock and both vehicles were towed from the scene.

 AT 2.50pm on Saturday Dysart police were called to a single vehicle rollover at the Dysart turn-off on the Peak Downs Highway.

The silver Nissan sedan was travelling south when the vehicle drifted off the left side of the road before it swerved back to the right, losing control and rolling several times before coming to a stop on all four wheels.

The 40-year-old male driver suffered no injuries and returned a negative blood alcohol reading when tested by police.

 POLICE are still searching for the driver of a red Holden utility involved in a single vehicle crash opposite the Caltex service station on the Capricorn Highway on Thursday night.

The incident occurred at 10.40pm when the driver lost control coming out of Codenwarra Rd, hitting a light pole.

The driver left the scene of the crash and police are making inquiries to identify the offender at the time of the crash.
