Second crash victim dies

A SECOND woman has died as a result of last week’s smash on the Pacific Highway south of Macksville.

The 77-year-old Tuncurry woman was airlifted to Coffs Harbour hospital and was later flown to Sydney, where she was being treated at Royal North Shore Hospital.

A 78-year-old Tuncurry woman sustained serious injuries and was airlifted to Coffs Harbour hospital, where she later died.

An 80-year-old Mascot man was taken to Coffs Harbour hospital before his transfer to Newcastle’s John Hunter Hospital, where he remained in a serious but stable condition yesterday.

Elsewhere, a 47-year-old Dorrigo man remained in a critical condition yesterday following a fall from his bicycle on Sunday morning.

Police received a call just after 9am to attend the accident five kilometres west of Thora. They found the man lying unconscious on the road.

He was taken to Coffs Harbour hospital and later transferred to John Hunter Hospital.

The man had been riding down Waterfall Way from Dorrigo at around 70km/h when he hit a dip in the road.

He apparently lost control and came off his bike, landing heavily on the road and hitting his head.
