One man caught at 153kmh in 100 zone, another in crash

DAY one of phase three of the Queensland Police Christmas Road Safety Campaign got off to a disappointing start in Capricornia yesterday when a motorist was hospitalised.

Just after 4am, Queensland police, fire and ambulance crews responded to a single-vehicle rollover on Kunwarara Rd at Yaamba.

A 25-year-old man was transported to Rockhampton Hospital in a stable condition.

Phase two of the campaign, targeting the fatal five, finished at midnight on Sunday, with police releasing results of the 12-day operation yesterday.

The results included the highest Capricornia speeding offence which occurred on Boxing Day on Emu Park Rd when a 17-year-old Emu Park man was caught and fined for travelling at 153km/hr in a 100 zone.

Also included in the results was the highest Capricornia drink driving reading, which saw a 44-year-old Yeppoon woman charged after recording a BAC of 0.227 in Yeppoon on December 23. More than 550 drug drivers and almost 800 drink drivers were among those included in phase two of this year's Queensland Christmas Road Safety Campaign.

Six people died on Queensland roads during the holiday period, two more than the same period last year.

Phase three of the campaign, which incorporates the January school holidays and the back-to-school period, continues until January 29.
