Woman killed in crash at Valla

A WOMAN has died in a tragic single vehicle accident at Valla Beach yesterday morning.

Police said a passing motorist had noticed a sedan in a creek off Coleman's Road about 6.30am.

Police believe it appeared the vehicle left the roadway off a low bridge and went into the creek.

The car had subsequently overturned and submerged on impact.

The vehicle was removed from the creek by a crane before police discovered the body of the driver, who is believed to be a 44-year-old Kempsey woman.

The roadway was blocked before being re-opened.

A report will be prepared for the information of the Coroner.
