Rain brings chaos on CQ roads

By TAMARA KEMP

WET weather created chaos on the roads yesterday.

Emergency services were run off their feet after a string of ac- cidents in the Rockhampton, Yeppoon and Mount Morgan areas.

At 3.24pm Queensland Ambu- lance Service was called to a sin- gle-vehicle accident on Rock- hampton-Yeppoon road after a vehicle overturned.

An ambulance was also called to a single-vehicle accident on the corner of Yaamba and Richard- son roads, North Rockhampton at 3.54pm.

No one was transported to hos- pital from the two accidents.

One minute later, at 3.55pm, a woman and child were taken to Rockhampton Hospital after a single-vehicle accident on the Rockhampton-Yeppoon Road near the Cawarral turn off.

The woman received leg inju- ries while the child had abdomi- nal injuries.

Three minutes later, ambu- lance officers arrived at Moores Creek road to attend to a single- vehicle traffic accident.

A 17-year-old woman was tak- en to Mount Morgan Hospital with arm injuries after an acci- dent on James Street, Mount Morgan at 4.07pm.

Emergency services are advis- ing motorists to take care during the wet weather and to drive to suit the conditions.

Rockhampton Bureau of Me- teorology forecaster Mike Grif- fin said similar storm conditions were expected today.

He said Rockhampton could expect temperatures to reach the mid-30s.
