Lucky escape for young driver

It was a lucky escape for one driver this morning at Coramba.

The 18-year-old rolled his Toyota 4 Runner on a curve on Eastbank Rd (southbound approximately 3km north of Coramba) just after 10am.

The Rural Fire Service, NSW Ambulance paramedics and NSW Police attended the scene.

The male was uninjured and managed to get himself out of the wreckage.

With heavy rain across the region overnight motorists are urged to take extra caution.
