Car crash at Park Beach

COFFS HARBOUR police are often credited with cleaning up our streets and they were at it again yesterday morning.

Senior police mucked in with general duties officers, tow truck drivers and even local media to clear an accident scene at Park Beach.

They pushed the wrecked cars off the road and swept up broken glass to ensure safe passage for other motorists.

The emergency and salvage crews were called to the two-car collision on Hogbin Drive North just before 9am.

They arrived to discover a Korora woman, 40, had been driving her white Proton south to attend university when she was struck from behind by another car near Park Beach Road.

Paramedics treated the woman at the scene before taking her in a stable condition to Coffs Harbour Health Campus, where she was further examined for suspected spinal injuries.

The male driver of the other car was not injured.

The busy road was closed for a short time at the height of peak hour so crews could attend to the drivers and clear the scene.

Police inquiries into the cause of the smash continue.
