Honey ...? Are you sitting down?

A QUEENSLAND woman and her family passing through the Coffs Coast were lucky to walk away uninjured from a collision last night.

Witnesses said the woman, driving a luxury Jaguar sedan, attempted a risky U-turn across six lanes of the Pacific Highway about 800m north of the Big Banana in Coffs Harbour with a totally unwanted outcome.

The vehicle allegedly crossed into the path of a Mitsubishi Colt which struck the driver's side of the Jaguar at about 80kph, causing significant damage to both cars.

The incident left the Mitsubishi a write-off with the Jaguar severely deformed and in need of expensive repairs.

Accident and emergency services staff attended the scene.

A female driver thought to be aged in her 40s and sole occupant of the Mitsubishi sustained minor injuries and was taken to hospital by ambulance for treatment.

The driver of the luxury vehicle is believed to be uninjured.

Reports suggest the Jaguar was on loan from the driver's boyfriend in Queensland.

Her three passengers were all family members and said they were in Coffs Harbour for a reunion of three generations.
