The worst accidents seem to be the ones caused by drink driving, as this picture of a mangled vehicle so clearly demonstrates.
Police believe alcohol was a key factor in a crash involving a B-Double truck and a mini-van which claimed the lives of 3 men travelling in the mini-van.
It is believed the 3 men were travelling back from a tavern when the collision occurred around 2am on Saturday morning.
The ages of the men ranged from late 20s to early 40s. Cairns Forensic Crash Unit Sen-Constable Lee Chamberlain described the scene of the crash as one of “utter devastation” with the mini-van being almost completely destroyed.
