Child badly hurt in crash transferred to Brisbane hospital

A CHILD who suffered head injuries in a serious head-on crash on the Bruxner Highway, west of Lismore, on Thursday afternoon, has been transferred to a Brisbane hospital for specialist treatment.

Lismore police Inspector Mick Dempsey said the driver of the eastbound blue Ford Falcon sedan, a 53-year-old man from St Vincent, Queensland, underwent mandatory blood tests at Lismore Base Hospital.

Insp Dempsey said the 31-year-old woman and her two boys, aged four and five in the westbound Toyota Corolla, were from Casino.

A Northern NSW Local Health District spokeswoman said the mother, one of her boys and the driver of the other car remained in Lismore Base Hospital yesterday in a stable condition.
