Police have confirmed three major incidences in the past 6 days throughout our region.
At about 9pm on August 12, Goondiwindi Police attended the Cunningham Highway and the intersection of Kildonan Road regarding a single vehicle roll over. The 22-year-old man was the only occupant and not injured in the accident. Goondiwindi Police continue to urge motorists to the dangers of country road driving, stating to slow down, watch for wildlife and make sure you stop every two hours for a break.
On August 16, Goondiwindi Road Policing Unit detected a 21-year-old New South Wales motorist on the Liechhardt Highway travelling at 147 km/hr in the 100km/hr zone. The driver was issued with a high range speeding fine. Goondiwindi Police, Officer in Charge Senior Sergeant McIntosh is urging motorists to slow down and drive to the conditions of the country roads. This type of speed is unacceptable and places a high risk not only to the driver but to all other motorists.
On August 16, Goondiwindi Road Policing Unit again intercepted a vehicle with a 37-year-old male driver from South Australia. A search of the vehicle revealed a quantity of cannabis as well as a drug utensil. The South Australian man will face court on September 19.
