There has been yet another caravan rollover involving grey nomads in Outback Australia.
In the latest incident, a Queensland couple walked away with only cuts and bruises after their 4WD and caravan crashed on a remote Northern Territory road.
The man and woman, in their 70s, came to grief on the unsealed Shady Camp Road near the Stuart Point Wilderness Lodge, about 110 kilometres east of Darwin. The road the pair were travelling on leads to Shady Camp, a popular fishing location on the Mary River system.
According to the ABC, another motorist came across the crash site, then drove to the lodge to raise the alarm because there is no mobile phone
coverage in the area.
The CareFlight TIO Rescue Helicopter was despatched to the scene. The couple, who are from the Gold Coast and were planning on spending winter in the north, were treated by the CareFlight doctor and nurse for cuts and bruises and then flown to Royal Darwin Hospital.
They were in a stable condition when the helicopter landed at the hospital after yesterday’s accident.
In the past few weeks, there have been a series of caravan rollovers involving grey nomads.
