Speed camera van in collision on highway

AN INTERNAL police investigation will be conducted after a car and a speed camera van collided.

Ipswich Inspector Keith McDonald said the crash happened on the Brisbane Valley Hwy near the intersection with Lloyds Rd at Wanora 18km north-west of the Ipswich CBD about 7.30pm Sunday.

Inspector McDonald said the speed camera van was just leaving after conducting routine speed detection operations when the collision happened.

"The vehicle was parked at the side of the road and it had started to move off. It was one of our speed camera vans," Insp McDonald said.

"It had finished its deployment and it was returning back to Ipswich.

"The officer was just departing his location when he was unfortunately involved in a collision.

"Thankfully there were no significant injuries. Both cars are extensively damaged."

He said the police officer was taken to hospital for observation and a passenger from the other vehicle was kept in hospital overnight for observation.

The investigation will be conducted in Ipswich.

"That's investigated internally and that gets tabled in front of a service committee in terms of what action should be taken if the police officer is at fault," Insp McDonald said.

"We do it here and it is overviewed by the Ethical Standards Command."

The crash was at the end of overtaking lanes on the highway. It was reduced to one lane while emergency services were there.
