More lives lost on Queensland roads after worst week for traffic deaths It was already the worst week of the year for deaths on Queensland roads – and now three more lives have been lost. Fifteen people have been killed in a matter of days, the latest - two women and a man in a high-speed smash near Bundaberg. The driver of dark blue Commodore veered onto the wrong side of the road, at 100 kilometres an hour. Police don’t know why. Two people travelling the other way stood no chance, and all three, aged in their 60s, were killed. A third car was caught in the chaos, and two other people were taken to hospital. Lee Chamberlain from the Forensic Crash Unit, said: “It's just another tragic loss of life really.

"We're here to spread the ashes of my mum, she passed away four-odd years ago," son Andrew said.

"It's taken us a while to build up the courage to come down here and do it. We chose this week specifically because it's her birthday on Thursday."

With so many people to accommodate, the Hydes thought Airbnb would be their best option.

But Andrew said when they arrived, hostess Sophie said that the house had five bedrooms, she had a right to stay there, and refused to leave.

"She pretty much blatantly just asked, 'are you guys going to have a party in my house', and I said, 'no, we just need the privacy'," Andrew's partner Bella said.

Airbnb offered the family a full refund, but it was going to take up to 10 days for the money to return to their accounts.

'You beauty!' Tradie scoops $4.8MILLION on the lottery - and vows to never work nights or overtime again The crane driver from Townsville in north-eastern Queensland, who asked not to be identified, was the only person to take home first prize in Monday night's Set for Life draw. The blue-collar worker, who will now take home $20,000 a month for the next 20 years, couldn't quite believe his luck when he found out about his fortune - but he did promise to 'kiss night shifts and overtime goodbye'. 'Holy sh**! Thank you very much,' he said to the Golden Casket official who informed him of his win. 'You bloody beauty! This has changed my whole life.

I should start by saying I do not hate Airbnb . Actually, despite its shortcomings, I love it, and I use the app almost exclusively when I’m traveling for leisure. Let me tell you: I’ve never checked a bathroom so thoroughly for toilet cams in my life . After much discussion, we decided to complain to Airbnb .

With nowhere private to go, the family were forced to sleep in their cars for the first night.

For the second night, they relocated to the common room of a retirement village complex in Sydney, where the Hydes' grandmother resides in a one-bedroom apartment.

Hostess Sophie told A Current Affair the family had cancelled their reservation and it had "nothing to do with (her)".

"They should apologise to me. They asked me to get out," she said.

She said she asked Airbnb to upload the ad for her, and claimed it was Airbnb's fault the ad was misconstrued.

After A Current Affair got involved, Airbnb put the Hyde family up in one of their top properties for the remainder of their trip.

They had also offered the Hydes a $500 voucher.
