The Bonny Hills Rural Fire Service (RFS) responded to an incident on Saturday night (June 12) after reports two cars had been damaged by a large rock that was in the middle of Ocean Drive, Bonny Hills.
The RFS crews were called to the scene near the Bonny Hills tennis courts around 8.30pm.
"Our crews responded to an oil spill on Ocean Drive after two cars had been damaged after driving over a large rock that had been placed in the middle of the road," Bonny Hills RFS firefighter Con Kazoglou said.
"The rock had ripped the oil sump out of one of the cars which resulted in the oil spill that crews had to absorb with sawdust.
"The rock did appear to have been deliberately put there."
RFS crews directed traffic and contacted the police to report the incident.
Both cars were severely damaged and had to be towed from the scene.
A post on the Bonny Hills RFS Facebook page states that while crews were attending the scene on Saturday night, it was reported that approximately one hour earlier a member of the public had removed a large rock placed in the same spot.
It has also been reported that a similar incident occurred the night before.
"We also received a call on Sunday night that a car had driven over another large rock on the same road, but we weren't required to attend as there was no oil spill," Mr Kazoglou said.
Anyone that has any information regarding this incident is urged to contact the police.
