Car spins out of control before hitting power pole

A man has walked away from a car crash on Upper Dawson Rd.

It is believed the man driving the vehicle turned the corner from Canning Street into Upper Dawson Rd and lost control of the vehicle.

A witness who was at the Allenstown Hotel at the time said they heard a 'big bang' from outside and when they looked they saw a B M M & M cleaning services van crashed into a power poll.

It is believed the car turned the corner and hit the gutter, causing the car to spin out of control,before hitting a power pole on the corner of Derby St and Upper Dawson Rd. 

The accident happened at 10.30pm and it has been reported the man walked away with no severe injuries.

Queensland Police, Queensland Fire and Emergency Services, Queensland Ambulance and Ergon Energy attended the scene.

A witness from the Allenstown Hotel who asked to not be named said this was not the first time an incident of this kind has happened.

"This is a dangerous street," the witness said. 

"Just the other week a lady ran a stop sign and t-boned another car, the lady who was hit was pregnant."

The van has since been towed away from the location and the street is now free of blockages.

The cause of the crash is still unknown at this stage.
