Bruce Highway closed after car crashes into cow
MOTORISTS are being warned to expect delays after a car crashed into a cow on the Bruce Highway south of Mackay.
A Queensland Traffic alert said a single-vehicle crash was impacting the highway in both directions at Carmila.

But a Queensland Police Service spokeswoman said the delay was caused when a male driver "hit a cow" while driving on Bill Garnham Bridge at 7pm.
"There's a male complaining of neck and back pain, and I would say his car is not in a good way," she said.
She said police officers were called to check on the driver, secure the highway and in case the cow had to be euthanased.
A Queensland Ambulance Service spokesman said paramedics had not been tasked to the crash.
