Truckers bashed

By CRAIG McTEAR

TWO truckers have come off second best in a road rage blow-up on the Pacific Highway.

One suffered serious injuries in the fracas.

Police said three men in a blue Mitsubishi Magna sedan and a Queensland truck driver, 41, became involved in an argument near Boambee's Mobil Service Station at 11.30pm on Monday.

The dispute centred around the behaviour of the three men on the highway further north, Senior Constable Jon Parker said.

A second truck driver, a 44-year-old from the Central Coast, stopped to help his colleague.

The truckers became involved in a fight with the three men, who fled from the area.

The injured pair contacted police, who attended the scene.

The 41-year-old was treated at Coffs Harbour Health Campus for swelling, bruising and cuts, and was undergoing X-rays yesterday to see if he also had broken bones.

His condition was listed as stable yesterday. The 44-year-old suffered similar injuries, but was not hospitalised.

Police want to hear from anyone who may have seen the fight, or the earlier driving incident. Officers are also looking for three men described as Caucasian in appearance and aged in their early 20s.

If you can help with the investigation, contact Coffs Harbour police on 6652 0299.
