CONSULTING FROM WAIKERIE WEDNESDAYS AND THURSDAYS
IN an article titled “Four dangerous
weekend drivers” (The River News,
January 16, 2019), it was reported a
woman allegedly returned a positive
response to methamphetamine when
stopped by police on Friday, January 11.
Since releasing the first report, SA Police
since changed the information it provided.
It now says the woman in fact returned a
positive response to cannabis.
SAPOL report change
Busy week of clean-up for CFS
STURT Highway was a
dangerous road last week with local
emergency services called out to
three more vehicle incidents.
On Tuesday, January 22, at about
3.30pm, a trailer detached from a vehi-
cle on the Sturt Highway at Waikerie
and flipped, bouncing several times on
the road before coming to a stop.
An hour later, a car was rear-ended
near the location of the flipped trailer.
According to reports from those
approaching the clean-up of the
flipped trailer, the driver of a Hyundai
slowed her vehicle down, causing the
car behind her to run into the back
end of the Hyundai.
The passenger of the Hyundai suf-
fered neck injuries in the incident.
On Thursday, January 24, a vehicle
towing a caravan veered off the road
and hit a tree.
The vehicle was travelling on the
Sturt Highway near Golden Heights at
about 2.20pm when SA Police say it is
believed the driver veered off the road,
overcorrected and ran into a tree.
A power pole transformer exploded
on West Road at about 7pm on the same
day, causing disruptions to four houses.
It is believed the heatwave affected
the device and caused the incident.
