PHOTOS, VIDEO: Police believe driver hit tree, left to friends house

UPDATE 11.52am:

POLICE have spoken to the driver of the car that veered off the Bruce Hwy and came to a stop in a gully about 10km north of Calliope.

Police were made aware of the crash at 6pm but believe the accident happened at about 4pm.

Officer in Charge at Gladstone police station, Senior Sergeant Jamie Goodwin, said his information suggested the vehicle had collided with a tree.

"The crash occurred at about 4.15pm yesterday afternoon and the male driver was collected by a friend and transported back to his residence," he said.

When police first arrived on the scene the car still had its lights on and the keys were in the ignition.

Snr Srg Goodwin said it was too early to discuss whether any charges would be laid and said police will be speaking to the male driver "to ascertain what has occurred".

He urged anyone involved in a crash to immediately call police and not leave the scene.
