Three-cars in Pine Creek crash



AN ELDERLY Urunga couple, a Bellingen mum and her daughter, and a Macksville woman.

These were the unfortunate motorists caught in a three-car pile-up on the Pacific Highway at Pine Creek, 700m north of the RTA truck stop, at 9.30am yesterday.

Police said a white Ford Laser slowed because northbound traffic had come to a stop.

The vehicle behind, a white Mitsubishi Colt, slowed as well, but a blue Hyundai Sonata at the rear did not.

It smashed into the Colt, which then slammed into the Laser.

The Sonata was driven by a Urunga man, 87, who was not injured, but his wife, 81, was treated at hospital for a chest injury.

The Laser driver, a Macksville woman, 32, also went to hospital with shoulder and back pain.

The driver of the Colt, a Bellingen woman, 87, was taken to hospital, where she was treated for shock. Her 53-year-old daughter, also from Bellingen, was not hurt.

Emergency crews closed the highway for no more than five minutes during the rescue operation.

Police continue their in-quiries into the cause of the accident.
