Fatality on Bruce Highway Torbanlea Truck & car smash with 50 yr old woman from Bundaberg

Truck heading South collides with car coming out of Gympe St.

A SIMPLE mistake meant Cheree Vowles never made it home to Bundy after a trip to Hervey Bay on Sunday afternoon.

Witnesses state she did not stop or slow down at the intersection.

She died instantly from massive head & body injuries it appears.

The collision happened 4:45pm 9th June 2018 .

When I heard the heavy noises of braking, collisions & roll overs I knew it would be serious & I was on the scene within 60 secs of the fatal intersection collision.

Passers by & myself were in attendance & covered the body until services arrived.

Services,police & fire crews are now on the scene & the jaws of life are being used to extract the body of the dead woman.

The truck driver is in shock but uninjured

Drivers to win big with St Helens school lights and Torbanlea causeway funding

DRIVERS were the big winners across the Fraser Coast, with new traffic lights set for St Helen’s School and upgrades to Bruce Hwy.

The Torbanlea causeway will also become a reality, with funding of $1.8 million. The project was announced but not funded by the former LNP government.

However, hopes of bringing back pathology to the Maryborough Hospital will not be realised just yet, with no funding announced to revive the service.

Instead the Bruce Highway, the environment  and people with complex health needs were  among the areas funded in the Wide Bay’s $668 million 2015-16 spend.

The multi-million dollar boost includes $572.5 million for health, utility, education and transport infrastructure; $37.7 million in disaster relief funding; and $14.5 million – or $58m over four years – to pay for school improvements.

About $19 million will go towards improving and maintaining sections of the Bruce Highway  between Maryborough and Gympie.

Access to Maryborough’s St Helen’s School will be improved with a $2.1 million set of traffic lights at a nearby intersection.

Environmental commitments included $630,000 for a new wastewater treatment system at  Dundabara in the Great Sandy National Park on Fraser Island.

Both Fraser Coast and Bundaberg councils will share $43,000 to tackle littering and illegal dumping.

About  $500,000 will be spent repairing the Mary River levees.

A total of $1.3 million will fund the replacement of  CT scanners at Hervey Bay and Bundaberg hospitals.

The Fraser Coast will also benefit from a region-wide commitment of   $2.2 million for cardiology services, $4.9 million for ophthalmology services and $2.7 million for other health care services.

Hervey Bay’s hospital emergency department will get a share of $20 million set aside to improve ERs across the state.

Other Wide Bay region pledges included $24.8 million for public housing, $6.8 million for homeless support  and $25,000 to help indigenous communities with cultural and conservation projects.

The Wide Bay covers Fraser Coast, Kingaroy, Nanango, Bundaberg and Gympie.

THE TASER & CATTLEPROD STANDOFF BY POLICE IN BIZARRE INCIDENT @ TORBANLEA. FRASER COAST QUEENSLAND AUSTRALIA.FC CHRONICLE VERION OF EVENTS

Woman learns not to bring a cattle prod to a taser fight

CHRONICLE FRASER COAST NEWS LOGO

CS1499234-02A-BIG



THIS IS THE POLICE VERSION TO THE PAPERS-OTHER VERSION COMING IN NEXT

HOWARD police say they tasered a man who assaulted police in a shock-weapon stand-off involving a woman armed with a cattle prod at Torbanlea.

Police said a routine task “turned to custard” when they attended to speak to the occupants of a house who had allegedly moved back in since it was repossessed in October.

Sergeant Martin Slack said two police officers had attended to make inquiries about 9.15am on Tuesday, but when the situation escalated to threats and violence, a stand-off developed and a Howard police officer used his taser on the 34-year-old man.

The Torbanlea man and his 31-year-old female partner were arrested.

He was charged with assault on police, trespassing and obstructing police.

The woman was charged with serious assault on a police officer, trespassing and obstructing police.

Both have been given notice to appear at Maryborough Magistrates Court on November 26.

“No one was injured in the incident,” a spokesman for the Howard police said.

Sgt Slack said the taser was used to create an opportunity for officers to restrain the person.

“It stops the person from being able to lash out,” he said.

An earlier version of this story incorrectly said the man was armed with the cattle prod.
