Man suffers head injury in early morning crash
A MAN in his 20s has been taken to hospital after sustaining a head injury in a single vehicle crash in Bucasia early this morning.
A spokeswoman from Queensland Police said a car was travelling on Mackay Bucasia Road when it veered into a damaged light pole in front of a business on a nearby street, about 2.37am.
Police said the car then travelled a further 100m before coming into contact with a tree on Jenvey Court.
Following the crash, a male patient was transported to Mackay Base Hospital in a stable condition with a head injury.
Police attended the hospital with the patient to take evidence to check if he was under the influence of drugs or alcohol, a police spokeswoman said.
Police investigations are ongoing.
