Police investigate head-on collision
POLICE are awaiting the results of drug and alcohol testing as part of an investigation into a head-on collision which left two people with serious injuries.
Emergency services were called to the Yamba Rd crash about 7am on Saturday morning, after a green Toyota Camry crossed to the wrong side of the road near the marina, crashing head on with a white Ford Fiesta.
The driver of the Fiesta, a 64-year-old female from Grafton, suffered a broken pelvis and sternum, while a male passenger, 69, also broke his sternum.
Both were conveyed to hospital for treatment.
The 45-year-old driver of the Camry was breath-tested by police at the scene, and while the reading was negative he was taken for a blood and urine sample based on police observations of his behaviour.
Police also located some drug paraphernalia on the driver.
Both vehicles sustained extensive front-end damage in the crash.
