Police search for drivers from blood-soaked crash wreck

UPDATE: Police are calling on the occupants of a serious car crash at Clifton to come forward.

Clifton police officer-in-charge Sergeant Guy Smidt yesterday said police knew two men had been to Warwick Hospital for treatment of injuries sustained in a rollover on the Gatton Clifton Rd in the early hours of Tuesday.

They had since been discharged.

The car was found abandoned on its side about 6am Tuesday.

"It would be better if they would come forward of their own volition rather than police knocking on their door," Sgt Smidt said.

He said police had taken DNA samples from the scene.

EARLIER: A severely damaged car found abandoned on its side in a rural driveway has baffled police.

Clifton police officer-in-charge Sergeant Guy Smidt said officers were yesterday afternoon trying to find the owner of a Kia sedan that was found in front of a Gatton-Clifton Rd property about 6am.

"They have rolled the vehicle several times and come to a rest in the driveway," Sgt Smidt said.

Police believe the crash occurred between midnight and 2.30am yesterday.

The property owner noticed the car.

"He was waiting for a truck to pick up grain and he saw the vehicle on its side," Sgt Smidt said.

"Preliminary investigations would suggest speed was a relative factor in the crash."

He was surprised the occupants were able to flee the wreckage.

The impact of the crash had caused major damage.

"There is a considerable amount of blood inside the vehicle."

Searches were conducted in the area but no one was found. Anyone with information on the crash is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800333000.
