Truckie rams border-checkpoint in Queensland

An interstate truck driver has been arrested by Queensland Police after ramming through a border-checkpoint 300km west of Brisbane.

A 26-year-old man was refused entry to Queensland in Goondiwindi on Wednesday, before ramming into check point barriers at Texas later that evening.

Both towns are along the Queensland-NSW border and are routinely patrolled by police due to the state’s COVID-19 entry restrictions.

Deputy Police Commissioner Steve Gollschewski said the man has been charged with illegally entering Queensland in breach of a health order, and with wilful damage.

“That person was turned around. They didn’t have a right of entry at Goondiwindi, chose to go to another border crossing at Texas, tried to drive through it in a truck – didn’t work,” he said.

Police used CCTV footage to identify the vehicle before locating the man about 5pm on Thursday.

The truckie has since been returned to NSW but will face Inglewood Magistrates Court on November 18.

Police have carried out 16,000 vehicle checks in the past 24 hours along the border, with 191 people turned around.
