Woman can't recall hit and run
A WOMAN, who was hit by a car as she walked along the roadway at Coutts Crossing on Sunday afternoon, has no recollection of the incident that almost claimed her life.
The 48-year-old had been walking along the Armidale Road, roughly 5km south-west of the town about 4pm when she was hit at high speed by a vehicle.
A NSW ambulance spokesman said she was found barely conscious on the roadway suffering arm, knee, shoulder and neck injuries and was unable to recall what had happened.
Ambulance paramedics from Grafton stabilised her at the scene.
She was then transported to a nearby cricket oval where she was met by the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter and airlifted to Lismore Base Hospital on Sunday night.
The woman’s condition is listed as serious but stable.
Her family was contacted by authorities late yesterday and further police investigations are under way into the accident.
Police were yesterday unable to release details about how the accident occurred or information surrounding the motorist or vehicle, which was involved.
Further information is expected to be released today.
Anyone who may have witnessed the accident or has information that can help police should contact Grafton detectives on 6642 0222.
