Queensland Parliamentary Annexe disturbed by Extinction Rebellion protest

This morning, October 13, a protest organised by Extinction Rebellion disrupted the Queensland Parliamentary Annexe in Brisbane.

A 92-year-old woman died in hospital after being hit by a car after she got off a bus at Goonellabah near Lismore yesterday (Monday) afternoon.

Police say the accident occurred in Cambridge Drive, just before 12.10pm, as the woman started to cross the road.

Ambulance paramedics helped the woman at the scene and took her to Lismore Hospital where she died a short time later.

The 40-year-old female driver of the Subaru Outback station wagon involved in the accident was uninjured and taken to Lismore Hospital for mandatory blood testing.

Investigations continue and a report will be prepared for the Coroner.
