LUCKY DRIVER: Car drives off road, just misses creek

AN EYEWITNESS says a car has had a very close call with a creek after it drove off a road near a roundabout at the Gladstone Airport today.

The person on scene said the person operating the vehicle appeared to be a learner driver, though this is unconfirmed.

A tow truck was seen attempting to remove the car from the vicinity of the creek.
