Second explosives truck accident in two months

Another truck carrying explosive materials has been involved in an accident on Central Queensland roads last week.

A section of the Carnarvon Highway was closed from 9pm Thursday until Friday morning to clean up spilled ammonium nitrate, the result of a truck rollover near Rolleston on Thursday afternoon.

This is the second ammonium nitrate carrying truck to crash in two months, as a truck exploded in September near Charleville, destroying large sections of road and rail and injuring the truck’s driver, firefighters, and other motorists.

Queensland Police Service are now investigating the crash.
