Police urge drivers to take care at junction

Police have called for driver care after a minor accident could've ended much worse for an elderly woman and a group of young men at the New England Highway and Wallangarra Road junction earlier today.

A woman in her 80s was treated for mild shock after the car she was traveling in was struck by a ute heading south-bound on the New England highway shortly after 1pm.

Both cars were able to safely drive away from the scene and ambulance officers transferred the woman to Stanthorpe Hospital for further observation.

Sergeant Tim Dachs from the Stanthorpe Police urged drivers to tread cautiously when entering and exiting the highway.

"This stretch used to be bad but we haven't had any bad accidents here for a while," he said.

"If people exercise due care when driving this junction these accidents should never happen."
