School children hurt in Pacific Highway pile-up

FIVE people, including three Sydney school kids, were taken to hospital yesterday after a three car pile-up on the Pacific Highway.

Police and a fleet of ambulances were called to the accident scene 2km north of Corindi Beach at 11.08am.

The schoolchildren, who were returning to Blacktown from a trip to Fraser Island, were in a Land Rover which had stopped at roadworks, police said.

A southbound Lancer sedan slammed into the rear of the Land Rover, which was towing a trailer, and a Mercedes sedan travelling behind hit the rear of the Lancer.

The three children, the Lancer driver and a passenger in the Mercedes were treated for minor injuries at Coffs Harbour Health Campus.

Woolgoolga police were late yesterday continuing their inquiries into the cause of the smash.
