Lawrence man seriously injured in crash

A MAN who was seriously injured when his Toyota Hilux left the Summerland Way yesterday is from Lawrence.

The 67-year-old is believed to be in a stable condition at Lismore Base Hospital, where he was airlifted to following the crash on the Summerland Way yesterday.

According to police, the vehicle was travelling south when it failed to manouvre a right turn and continued straight, through bushland and into a tree.

The impact caused the vehicle to flip on its roof, trapping the driver inside.
