Truck jack-knifes near Corindi

A GRAFTON man jack-knifed his truck on a notorious bend in the Pacific Highway just north of Corindi yesterday afternoon.

The driver, Chris Birkett, was carrying a bobcat south on the highway when he lost control on the sweeping Blackadders bend near the Red Rock turnoff.

He claimed the back end of the truck slipped out uncontrollably before overturning.

“There is no reason for it, that’s the scary thing,” Mr Birkett said.
