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

Some pics below I took at the scene just minutes ago

The accident happened outside my front driveway at Torbanlea on the Bruce Highway

TORBANLEA BRUCE HIGHWAY INTERSECTION BEING UPGRADED

Great to see this very much used intersection being upgraded & well overdue


Department of main roads Queensland has been assessing the Torbanlea intersection for some time and has now actually nominated the Sunstate Group Qld Pty. Ltd to carry out the works.

Some pics are attached on works commencing taken by Henry Sapiecha.

Jim Gabriel project manager for Sunstate said they would be doing the upgrade over the next 4-6 months

Ron Grieves from the Dept of Main Roads has commented on the need for this upgrade and will get back to his department re the placement of further pipes under the highway for future growth plans for the area and especially the 60 acres or so across the highway where a proposal for a 300 modular home village has been put forward to be used by the ‘Grey Nomads’.

The existing power lines over the highway will be replaced by an underground service as part of the current intersection upgrade
