Women recovering after crash

A PREGNANT woman is recovering in Stanthorpe Hospital after the car in which she was travelling crashed into a tree west of Stanthorpe this morning.

At 5.54am, police, fire and ambulance crews attended the Broadwater location on Marino Rd to remove the 26-year-old woman from the vehicle.

Police said her male partner, and driver of the vehicle, also 26, allegedly failed to take the bend in the road at the Ricossa Ln turn-off.

It is believed the extremely heavy fog distorted visibility and caused him to hit the tree.

The woman was transported to hospital for scans but was in a stable condition.
