68yo man pinned under car in work accident

A LAWRENCE man was flown to Lismore Base Hospital after an incident while working on his car on a property near Lawrence.

The Westpac Rescue Helicopter was tasked to the property at 11.30am on Saturday following a report of a man pinned underneath his car after the car he was working on fell off the jacks.

Local residents reported multiple ambulances at the scene to treat the man, and ambulance Paramedics and the Helicopter Critical Care Medical Team stabilised the 68yo male.

He is suffering from chest injuries and was flown to Lismore Hospital in a stable condition for further treatment.

It came just hours before power lines came down on the Pringles Way north of the village, cutting electricity to more than 500 in the area north of Lawrence. Authorities said the two incidents are unrelated.
