Alleged road rage ends in crash at Halfway Creek
AN ALLEGED road rage incident has resulted in a two-vehicle crash at Halfway Creek which injured three people, including a small baby.
Grafton Highway Police were called to the scene on the Pacific Highway about 3pm yesterday, following reports of a four-wheel-drive rollover.
It is believed the two vehicles, the 4x4 and a white Commodore sedan, were both travelling south on the Pacific Highway at the time of the alleged road rage incident.
The driver of the white sedan was arrested following a positive roadside breath test.
A breath analysis of the provisional licence holder recorded the special range concentration of 0.022 grams of alcohol in 210 litres of breath.
He was later charged with assault following an altercation post accident.
Police said a female and small baby were also in the Commodore at the time of the crash, and both were treated by paramedics on scene.
They were conveyed to Grafton Base Hospital with non life threatening injuries.
The driver of the four-wheel-drive suffered minor injuries as a result of both the collision and alleged assault.
Police said both drivers were assisting with inquiries regarding the road rage incident that triggered the eventual crash.
