A TOURIST from the United Kingdom was left seriously injured after the car he was driving left the Pacific Highway and crashed into a 4WD parked outside a fruit stall at Warrell Creek.

The 25-year-old was trapped in the wreckage for 30 minutes, before he was freed by Nambucca VRA volunteers, while his female passenger, 24, was also hospitalised.

Three passengers in the other vehicle, a man, 21, a boy, 13 and a girl, 7, were taken to Kempsey Hospital and checked as a precaution.

At the time of the accident, police said the parents of the trio were purchasing fruit and were among the first on scene after the station wagon left the roadway and struck their Toyota Kluger.

Mid North Coast police said the accident happened just after 1pm on Monday, after the Holden Commodore ran off the road.

The driver of the station wagon was airlifted from Kempsey Hospital and was last reported to be in a serious but stable condition with pelvic injuries.

The crash blocked the south-bound lanes for an hour, as light vehicles were diverted around the crash scene via Warrell Creek Rd.

The accident has been the first major crash to occur on the Coffs Coast sections of the Pacific Highway these school holidays.
