Driver in shock after crash

TRAFFIC was disrupted on one of Grafton's busiest streets this afternoon following a two car collision.

Grafton Fire and Rescue reported that there was no major injuries to either vehicles occupants following the incident.

Grafton resident Rachelle Layer, who was involved in the crash, told The Daily Examiner it all happened in a flash, as she was driving her Toyota Kluger through the intersection of Prince and Powell St. 

"I was driving down the street to drop off dinner to (a friend's) elderly parents and I was just, bang! And all of a sudden I am just spinning around in circles," Ms Layer said.

"I think I'm in shock, I really can't believe this has happened."

Mr Layer was hit by the air bags in her car..

"All the air bags went off, which is why I bought such an expensive car, because of the safety features.

"The air bag got me on this side (right) of the face, which is when I realised I'd been hit.

"It was just so quick, the bang and the spinning and the air bags."

Ms Layer said this was her first crash.

"I used to drive trucks in the Army, I was a truck driver in the army and I never ever experienced a vehicle accident before," she said.

Chris Lawler said Grafton Fire and Rescue helped with traffic control as the cars were removed from the scene.

"We got a report that there could have been oil on the road but there wasn't, so we just helped with traffic control until the vehicles were removed," he said.

Police attended the scene, but are yet to comment.
