Man handcuffed at scene of two car crash

UPDATE: A MAN, aged in his 30s, has been detained by police after a two car crash on the Pacific Highway, south of Coffs Harbour, a short time ago.

The man was handcuffed by officers at the scene of the accident, near South Boambee Rd.

That came after the vehicle he was allegedly driving, a Subaru Impreza, ran up the back of a northbound Volkswagen sedan being driven by a woman aged in her 60s.

The crash is understood to have happened at such speed that one of the wheels of the Subaru smashed the rear windscreen of the Volkswagen in front and tyre marks were visible on the roof of that car.

After the impact, both the Subaru and Volkswagen, spun out control crashing over the median strip in the middle of the highway.   

Passing motorists alerted police.

The female driver of the Volkswagen sedan, who is understood to have been travelling to the Gold Coast, was assessed at the scene by paramedics.

A NSW Ambulance spokesman said she was not transported to hospital.

Coffs Clarence Police are expected to release more details on the incident.
