Car goes up in flames

A 44-YEAR-OLD Biggenden man had a lucky escape when his vehicle left the road, rolled and caught fire outside Gayndah early Saturday morning.

However he wasn't so lucky when police found out he had no licence.

The single-vehicle incident occurred between 5am and 5.20am on the Burnett Hwy.

The blue Ford Falcon wagon came off the left-hand side of the road and travelled about 80m before it rolled and came to rest back on its wheels.

The vehicle then caught fire and was completely destroyed.

Firefighters, police and ambulance officers attended the scene.

The driver was ordered to appear in Gayndah Magistrates Court on June 28.
