Echonetdaily has received early reports of an accident on the M1 near the Chinderah turn-off.

Emergency services are in attendance and delays can be expected this afternoon.

  1. Just because the car is upside down in the southbound lane, from the photo, it seems the car was travelling north in the northbound lane.
    To veer off the northbound lane at that angle it would have had to hit another car at a speed going faster than the other car in the northbound lane.
    The car in veering off would bounce off the other car and cross the grassed median strip and dive into the water drain. As the front wheel would dive down and dig into the dirt the back of the car would rise and come up over the front of the car as it was propelled high into the air.

Is hydrogen part of a sustainable energy future?

There’s a lot to like about hydrogen. For starters, it’s abundant. Hydrogen can store excess renewable power. When liquified, it’s more energy intense than fossil alternatives. In a fuel cell, it can generate electricity. When it’s burned, the only by-product is water.
