Four injured in Pimlico crash

TWO people were seriously injured following a single-car accident on Pimlico Rd just south of Ballina this morning.

Police, paramedics and rescue crews attended the scene of the crash which occurred at 8.50am about 1.5kms from the Pacific Highway junction.

It is believed the car, which had four occupants, rolled, left the road and came to rest upside-down in a culvert drain.

NSW Ambulance Service duty officer, Inspector Greg Powell, said all four passengers had been extracted from the wreck and were treated at the scene by paramedics. They were transported to Lismore Base Hospital by ambulance.

The 19-year-old female driver and a 25-year-old female passenger are suffering serious pelvic injuries while two other passengers, one female and one male, are reported to be in a stable condition having sustained lacerations and suspected spinal injuries.

Police declared the area a crime scene and are investigating the cause of the crash.

They have urged anyone who may have witnessed the crash to contact Ballina Police Station on 6681 8699.
