AMBOS are urging Bundaberg drivers to take more care on the roads after the 85-year-old woman was "lucky" to escape the Walker St crash with only a minor head injury.

She was taken to Bundaberg Hospital in a stable condition.

"All things considered, we were relieved she only had minor injuries," Bundaberg Ambulance Service spokesman Cameron Anderson said.

"It could have been much worse - it was better she impacted the windows and not walls or structure of the building.

"It's a really good reminder - with the rain around, you've got to slow down.

"Allow plenty of space between yourself and the car in front, give yourself room to brake, and make sure you have your headlights on.

"When it rains, we get a spate of crashes."


AN ELDERLY woman has been taken to hospital with fire services using a jaws of life to cut the door of her Hyundai sedan to free her.

The accident is believed to have occurred when the woman attempted to turn left onto Walker St from Targo St.

The car left the road, running over a hedge and crashing through the middle glass panel of the empty shop before smashing through the other side, facing the Olsen's Corner (South Side Central) carpark.

Police are investigating the scene and westbound traffic on Walker St is being diverted.
