Drivers unhurt after two vehicle crash in Cannonvale

THE two drivers involved in a traffic crash in Cannonvale this afternoon are shaken but unhurt.

Shute Harbour Road between Gailbrath Park Road and Paluma Road has now been reopened following the two-vehicle crash that happened around 3.10pm.

A 77-year-old woman was turning right out of Gailbrath Park Road onto Shute Harbour Road when she was struck by an oncoming car.

The 48-year-old man in the second car was driving down Shute Harbour Road towards Cannonvale when the woman appeared "out of nowhere".

The man was unable to stop in time and hit the back of the woman's car.

Police said the woman understood she failed to give way and was given a caution by the senior officer in attendance.

Both drivers received no injuries but were shaken by the experience.
