Driver escapes police, crashes car

TWO hours after evading police, a Ford sedan driver fled the scene of a single-vehicle crash on the D'Aguilar Highway at Coolabunia.

Nanango police attempted to intercept a Ford sedan on Brown St, Nanango at 9.20pm on October 19.

The driver failed to stop and crossed onto the wrong side of the road before police abandoned their attempt to intercept the car.

At 11.30pm, the same car was involved in a single-vehicle crash and fled the scene before police arrived.

Investigations are continuing.
