Three Trapped After Horror Smash
Incident occurred at approx 10:45 am on Cleveland Redland Bay Road at Thornlands. It is believed that the small sedan had veered onto the wrong side of the road after clipping a vehicle while attempting to overtake. The result was a head on accident that required the assistance of three fire stations in which three patients were trapped. It took around 40 minutes to free the occupant of the car and 30 minutes for the two persons in the people mover. There were multiple injuries for all patients involved. Police closed the dual carriage road for some time while the accident squad investigated the scene.
