‘Stolen’ truck wipes out power after chase
A SUSPECTED stolen truck has thrown much of Caboolture into darkness on Sunday night, after it crashed into a power pole after a police chase along the Bruce Hwy.
The DYNA truck was brought off the Bruce Hwy using stingers near Caboolture, where it smashed into a power pole, cutting power to more than 1700 homes.
Four people, including a teenage girl, are assisting police with their inquiries.
Electricity has since been restored, while a man - believed to be the driver - has been transported to the Royal Brisbane Hospital with lower leg injuries after becoming stuck in the truck.
