Man serious after Corindi highway crash



A MAN has been flown to Sydney after he crashed his car on the Pacific Highway at Corindi early yesterday.

Coffs Harbour police said the Sydney 22-year-old and his male passenger were en route to the Gold Coast from Sydney when the accident happened 150 metres north of Blackadder Creek at 12.15am.

Their red 1988 Holden Commodore was travelling round a slight bend in wet conditions when the driver lost control and slammed into a large tree stump on the side of the road.

The car then overturned, with the smash causing extensive damage to the vehicle.

Rescue crews freed the trapped driver from his wreck and took him to Coffs Harbour Health Campus, where he was treated for head and neck injuries.

A North Coast Area Health spokeswoman said the man was in a serious condition and he was due to be airlifted to Sydney's Royal North Shore Hospital late yesterday.

His passenger suffered only minor injuries.

SES personnel, fire crews, ambulance officers and police attended the accident scene.
