Car roll at Wooli
A PORT Macquarie woman who was holidaying in Wooli rolled her car down an embankment about two kilometres north of Wooli on Sunday afternoon. It is alleged she fell asleep at the wheel.
Ambulance crews attended the accident and transferred the driver and two children who were in the car to Grafton Base hospital for observation.
A WOMAN had to be cut from her wreck after a two-car smash which closed the Pacific Highway north of Coffs Harbour.
The accident happened at the intersection of the highway and Moonee Beach Road at 4.55pm on Monday just as commuters were heading home.
Police said a Woolgoolga woman, 19, was driving a 2001 Nissan Pulsar and was turning from Moonee Beach Road to head north on the highway.
Her car struck a 1984 Toyota Forerunner, driven by a Sapphire man, 45, who was heading south on the highway.
Police, paramedics and SES crews dashed to the scene and discovered the man already out of his vehicle but the woman trapped inside hers.
Rescuers had to cut a door off the woman’s car to release her.
She suffered a broken collarbone and a minor head injury and the man sustained minor injuries.
Both were taken in stable conditions to Coffs Harbour Health Campus for further treatment.
Southbound lanes of the highway were closed for an hour during the rescue and salvage operation.
