Hectic night for emergency services

POLICE and emergency services were kept busy overnight with a spate of incidents reported.

In one major situation an off duty ambulance paramedic was woken just after 2am today by the sound of a collision outside his home.

After checking the scene he was stunned to discover a high powered vehicle had spun out of control and slammed into his fishing boat parked on the street.

The impact completely destroyed the boat which was tipped over on to one side.

Ignoring the damage to his boat the paramedic assessed the driver inside the badly mangled Holden Commodore utility and rendered first aid before calling for assistance.

Police, fire and ambulance services attended.

An officer at the scene said the driver, aged in his early twenties, sustained only minor injuries and was taken to Coffs Harbour Health Campus for further assessment.

It is alleged that speed and alcohol may have been a factor in the crash.

The boat owner said he was planning on a big fishing trip soon and hopes the boat can still be repaired in time.
