Driver allegedly caught speeding, on drugs twice in one hour

A WOMAN who was allegedly caught speeding and drug driving in Crawford at the weekend was not smart enough to learn from her mistake.

Kingaroy Road Policing Unit's Senior Constable Jade Miller said the 27-year-old female was intercepted by police allegedly travelling at 116kmh in a 100kmh zone on Sunday afternoon.

When she was pulled over, he said she was also allegedly driving under the influence of methylamphetamine.

The woman was taken to Kingaroy Hospital for blood tests and her licence was immediately suspended.

Within an hour of when she was first intercepted by police, Senior Constable Miller said the woman was allegedly back behind the wheel.

He said the woman was intercepted on the Bunya Hwy and given a notice to appear in court for disqualified driving.

Senior Constable Miller said she was first intercepted by police at 2.36 on Sunday afternoon then again at 3.35pm, less than an hour later.

"Very soon after she left hospital," Snr Con Miller said. "Within 10 minutes of dropping her back to her car to collect her belongings."

Snr Con Miller said a 48-year-old man was also intercepted for allegedly driving at 111kmh in a 100kmh zone on the Bunya Hwy on Sunday.

The man also allegedly tested positive for methylamphetamine and was taken to the Nanango Hospital for a blood test.

Senior Constable Miller reminded people roadside drug testing was now expanding across the state.
