Caravan jack-knifes in windy conditions

NO-ONE was hurt in a single vehicle and caravan crash on the Wide Bay Hwy, Goomeri police said yesterday.

A spokesman said four family members, including two small children, were riding in the tow vehicle, a 4WD Mitsubishi twin-cab utility.

The crash occurred about 5km east of Goomeri, when the caravan appeared to have been caught in a strong crosswind, police said.

The caravan began to weave in the windy conditions and jack-knifed, causing the utility to spin off the side of the road. It smashed into an embankment, about 11am, a witness said.

The east-bound lane of the highway was closed while the utility and remains of the caravan were loaded on to a tow truck.
