Busy weekend on roads for Kingaroy Police

IT has been a busy long weekend for South Burnett emergency service workers.

On Saturday night, the Kingaroy Road Policing Unit intercepted a 27-year-old Blackbutt woman driving on the Bunya Hwy, near Kingaroy.

Police allege the woman was driving with a relevant drug present in her blood.

She will be issued with a notice to appear in Kingaroy Magistrates Court.

On Sunday morning the unit detected two P-plater drivers travelling together on the Wide Bay Hwy, near Goomeri, at high speeds.

Senior Constable Jade Miller said police alleged the first P-plater was detected at 124kmh and the second following closely behind at 134kmh in the 100kmh zone.

The first P-plate driver faces a fine of $406 and the loss of four points and the second a fine of $568 and the loss of six points.

P Platers only have four points.

"This is exactly the type of irresponsible driving behaviour we are targeting on our highways," Snr Cnst Miller said.

"Police will continue deploying both marked and unmarked speed detection methods throughout the region."

The Queensland Ambulance Service attended to a man in his 20s after a car crashed into a tree on Redmans Rd, Kingaroy. A QAS spokesperson said the incident happened at 9am. The man was taken to hospital in a stable condition.

The QAS also attended the scene of a two vehicle crash on the Burnett Hwy in Nanango on Monday, at about 11am. The spokeswoman said QAS assessed a patient.
