P-plate drivers in hospital after three-car crash

TWO teenagers are in hospital after a crash involving three cars on Caniaba Rd at Lismore last night.

Richmond Local Area Command duty officer, Inspector Mick Dempsey, said the three male drivers of the crash, one 18-year-old and two 17-year-olds, were all P-Platers.

"Police allege that at least one vehicle was doing burnouts and the result was a motor vehicle collision involving three vehicles," he said.

"It appears there was a bit of illegal street racing going on."

Insp Dempsey said police believe the car doing a burnout crashed into the second car, which was traveling along Caniaba Rd, which then crashed into a parked car.

The cars - a white Mitsubishi Lancer, a silver Subaru Liberty, and a blue Mitsubishi Lancer - were badly damaged and had to be towed from the crash scene.

Police are continuing with investigations, and expect to lay some charges.
