A weird chain of events

By CRAIG MCTEAR

KATHY Martin never made it to her 9.30am gym class yesterday a bizarre accident in Coffs Harbour's CBD made sure of that.

At 9.10am, the Karangi woman, 39, was driving east in West High Street and turned right on the Moonee Street roundabout when her Mazda was T-boned by a Toyota Camry heading west in West High Street.

The Mazda went into a spin, but the Camry kept travelling and mounted the median strip at the West High Street pedestrian crossing, shot across the road, narrowly missing an eastbound Toyota Hilux before mounting the gutter, scraping a pedestrian sign and smashing into a wall at Caba's The Drapers and a second at SMS Community and Strata Specialists.

The Camry driver, a Wooli woman, 66, was pulled from her wreck, placed in a neckbrace and put into an ambulance for the trip to hospital.

She was the only person to be injured.

She was treated at Coffs Harbour Health Campus and later released. Police are yet to formally interview her.

Emergency crews swung into operation as shocked bystanders and passing motorists took in the scene.
