Car crash sends woman to hospital

A WOMAN was rushed to hospital after she was involved in a car crash during peak hour this morning.

At about 8:10am, a Holden Commodore turned right out of Richmond Hill Road at Goonellabah and onto Ballina Road, where it collided head-on with an eastbound vehicle.

The 40-year-old female driver of the eastbound vehicle was not trapped but remained in her car until paramedics arrived.

She sustained chest injuries and was transported to Lismore Base Hospital in a stable condition.

The two occupants of the other vehicle were uninjured.

NSW Ambulance, Police and NSW Fire and Rescue crews from Lismore attended the scene.

Traffic slowed to a crawl on the busy road for about an hour following the crash and until tow trucks and the fire brigade cleared the road.
