Police charge 18-year-old man after serious crash

Police have issued an 18-year-old Highfields man with a $400 fine after he failed to give way at an intersection, causing a crash.

The man was travelling along Cawdor Rd on February 14 in a Kia Rio hatchback when he collided with a Honda HR-V wagon.

Both vehicles were extensively damaged and towed from the scene.

In an unrelated matter, police intercepted a Toyota LandCruiser ute on Cawdor Drv, on February 20.

The 38-year-old male driver provided a positive alcohol reading of 0.095 per cent.

Checks revealed that the vehicle was also unregistered and uninsured.

Police charged the Gowrie Junction man with middle-range drink driving and driving an unregistered and uninsured vehicle.

He will appear in the Toowoomba Magistrates Court in March.

On February 15, police attended a single vehicle traffic crash on Mather St, Highfields after a contract postman lost control of his motorcycle and fell onto the road.

Queensland Ambulance Service paramedics treated the man before transporting him to the Toowoomba Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
