On-the-spot fine for letter-box crash
POLICE handed a $294 on-the-spot fine to a driver whose ute crashed into an Evan Street unit's mailbox.
Mackay police traffic branch said the ute crashed into the mailbox outside a residential unit off Evan St, South Mackay, about 7pm Sunday.
The driver, who was fined for failing to have proper control of a vehicle, was uninjured, a Queensland Police Media spokesman said.
Police arrived at the crash scene at 7.18pm but no ambulance was required. A crash crew and fire truck were later deployed to remove the ute.
Residents who saw the crash claimed to have heard a "loud bang"', not preceded by any sounds of engine revving or tire-squeals.
