Woman lucky to escape injury

AN Ulmarra woman, 51, was lucky to suffer only minor injuries after her car rolled onto its roof and then back onto its wheels on the outskirts of Grafton yesterday.

The woman was driving a small sedan on the Lawrence Road and was south of Butterfactory Lane when the accident occurred about 12.30pm, an emergency worker said yesterday.

It is unknown what caused the crash and the woman told people at the scene she was not sure what had happened.

It is understood the woman’s car narrowly missed a nearby telegraph pole.

The woman was taken by ambulance to Grafton Base Hospital.

A nearby resident said the crash occurred in the exact same spot as a similar accident four years ago.
