Ice cream van rolls over on the Bruce Hwy

UPDATE:

A CUPS and Cone ice cream delivery van heading south on the Bruce Hwy has lost control about 500m from the Gladstone/Benaraby turnoff.

The van seems to have skidded onto the wrong side of the road and then swerved back across the road and down a 3m embankment, knocking over an 80km speed sign in the process.

The van finished up alongside the Benaraby nursery.

Two passengers have been taken to Gladstone Base Hospital.

Commenting on our Facebook page, Katherine Kennett said she heard a screech then the bang from her backyard.

It appears nobody has been seriously hurt.

Radiator fluid is reported to be leaking on the road. Police, and fire crews are on their way.
