Driver charged for Corindi crash

A TRUCK driver lost control of his rig in the wet early yesterday, crashing into a shed at Corindi.

The accident happened on the Pacific Highway, 200 metres south of Red Rock Road, shortly before 1.30am.

Police have charged the 53-year-old uninjured Queensland male driver with negligent driving.

Police said it appeared the truck lost traction, careened through a guard rail and rolled. The truck slid sideways off the road before crashing through the front yard of a property and demolishing a shed.

Live power cables threatened to ignite diesel pouring from the truck's ruptured fuel tank. Country Energy personnel cut electricity to the property before Rural Fire crews were able to mop up the fuel spill.
