Teen in hospital after man’s alleged drink-driving
A WEST Gladstone man was allegedly drink-driving when he crashed into parked cars and a telegraph pole, resulting in a teenage passenger being taken to hospital.
Emergency services were called to Rossella St about 10.30pm last night after reports of a crash.
A Queensland Police Service spokesman said a man, 43, was charged with drink-driving and drive without due care and attention.
A court date had not been set.
A Queensland Ambulance Service spokesman said paramedics assessed a male in his late teens.
The teenager had no obvious injuries but was taken to Gladstone Hospital in a stable condition as a precautionary measure.
