A local resident said she thought an accident on Ballina road sounded like a large amount of timber hitting the ground.

She said it sounded awfully loud, and heavy.

Bill's Team volunteer Vanessa Neighbour had to have her car towed after it was involved in the accident.

"I heard a bang, and I said to Lindy, Bill's mum, 'There must be building work going on'," she said.

"I've gone out the front and seen my car in the gutter."

The collision on Ballina Rd, Goonellebah saw two stationary vehicles hit by a moving vehicle.

Paramedics were called to the scene but fortunately no-one involved needed to be transferred to hospital.

Ms Neighbour said that the driver of the second car had just left their vehicle and was walking down the driveway when the third vehicle plowed into the car.

Eastbound traffic was being affected for a short period of time.

Bill's Team volunteers have a designated parking spot  off the road but on this occasion the two vehicles had parked in legal parking spots along Ballina Road.

Ms Neighbour said she believed the vehicle had come from the right hand lane, across the left hand lane before plowing into both vehicles.

Volunteers looking to join Bill's Team can contact Sharon Holmes on telephone 66247512 or mobile 0412246629.
