Woman's car close to tipping off Bruce Highway

A WOMAN rang police in a distressed state last night when her car veered off the Bruce Highway at Monkland and stopped, dangling over an embankment.

A Gympie police spokesman said the car, which was heading south just before the Fox Glen Hotel, was at a 45 degree angle and was thought to be in danger of rolling off the side of the road.
