Pile up closes Yamba Rd
TRAFFIC is flowing again after an accident on the Pacific Highway near involving two cars and a truck.
Council crews used absorbent material to soak up fuel which had covered parts of the road after the accident.
It is understood two women, one driving a silver Subaru 4WD and the other, driving a black hatch-back, have been taken by ambulance to hospital.
A Yamba police officer said the women were in satisfactory condition.
UPDATE, 4.45pm: TRAFFIC will remain at a stand still for another 30-40 minutes after a four car crash on Yamba Rd this afternoon.
A Subaru 4 wheel drive with signs of heavy damage involved in the crash has been taken away.
All cars have now been cleared from the crash site, about 40m east of the Romiaka Channel Bridge.
But a council officer who was onsite said traffic, which was banked up for about 3km, would not be able to move until all fuel had been washed from the road.
He said motorists could expect to wait another 30-40 minutes.
A MULTI-VEHICLE accident has seen Yamba Rd closed in both directions.
The accident happened near the Oyster Channel Bridge.
Motorists are advised to avoid the area as a queue of eastbound traffic 2km long has already banked up. There is also no access into or out of Yamba as a result of the accident.
Emergency services are at the scene working to clear the accident.
