Lucky escape after cars collide

ONE car was left wrapped around a pole and the other mounted the footpath after onlookers watched horrified as two cars collided at the busy intersection of Albion and Grafton streets about 4pm yesterday.

The male driver of one vehicle was trapped for about 20 minutes as Queensland Fire and Rescue Service officers worked to free him, a Queensland Ambulance Service spokeswoman said.

“He was unable to open the door and was taken to Warwick Hospital with a head injury and cuts,” the spokeswoman said.

Mates Trent Curtis and Peter Carey saw the incident unfold as they waited for a green light.

“The cream car was T-boned. There was a big bang and then he was on the traffic island,” Mr Carey said.

A Warwick Police spokesman urged motorists to drive with extra caution during these school holidays.

“Holidays mean more cars on the road and people should drive to conditions accordingly,” the spokesman said.
