Driver's lucky escape as truckie spots crashed vehicle
AN EAGLE-eyed truckie was a guardian angel for a motorist whose vehicle crashed down an embankment.
Rural Fire Service Inspector Daniel Ainsworth said the driver of a car which went down a gully near Woodenbong around 5am today was found thanks to a truck driver who stopped to check his vehicle.
"A single vehicle drove over the edge of the road and a cattle truck driver was on the roof of his truck securing something when he saw a vehicle down the embankment near Lindesay Creek Rd,” he said.
"When the Woodenbong Fire Brigade arrived on scene they had to secure the vehicle with a chain so it would not go any further.”
Insp Ainsworth said an ambulance crew attended the incident and transported the patient.
