Truck rams driver on highway, pushes car sideways 200 metres

"SORRY, didn't see you there."

A driver had a frightening experience on the Bruce Highway when a truck rammed their Suzuki Swift and carried it along the northbound lanes for 200 metres. 

On June 9, a Mack prime mover changed lanes on the highway northbound near Uhlmann Rd at Burpengary and failed to see a small Suzuki swift in the left lane, police wrote on their Neighbourhood Watch blog post.

"The truck driver thought he had blown a tyre when in fact the Suzuki had been clipped, become lodged under the front of the truck and was pushed 200 metres sideways down the highway in front of the truck."

Incredibly no one was injured. 

Twenty-nine crashes were reported in the Moreton District in the past week up to Monday. 

The main cause of the Moreton Bay region's crashes were driving without due care and attention.

The highest roadside breath test reading for the week was obtained from a 22-year-old man who was detained by an off-duty officer after he was observed driving and swerving from side to side on the Bribie Island Road at Ningi.

Police from Bribie attended to assist and the driver allegedly blew .211%. He has been given a notice to appear at Caboolture Magistrates Court on June 26.

Police positioned themselves on the Bruce Highway eight times in seven days and caught 115 people allegedly speeding. One vehicle was clocked at 167kmh. 

Needess to say, it's been a big week for Moreton Bay police.
