An impatient driver was met by law enforcement after trying to use a rail corridor to bypass road closures caused by yesterday’s road fatality at Yabulu.
The failed attempt left the driver stuck on rail tracks, requiring help to be removed and blocking the path of a QRail train.
Other vehicles were seen leaving the highway attempting to bypass the crash via rural, unmarked and ungazetted roads.
Emergency services attend a fatal crash involving three vehicles just north of the Yabulu Overpass. Picture: Alix SweeneyTownsville District Duty Officer Senior Sergeant Matt Lyons urged motorists to be patient and show consideration.
“Additional police officers have been sent to the area and are stopping drivers from going on the rail corridor to bypass the crash,” he said.
“Police are attempting to get the car off the line which is taking up resources.
“QRail has indicated action will be taken against the driver so our officers will be pursuing that.”
