Girl, 6, in serious condition after Pacific Highway crash

A SIX-YEAR-OLD girl is in a serious condition after two parked cars were hit by a third car at Cowper, north of Grafton.

NSW Police report a Commodore sedan and a Holden ute were travelling south together on the Pacific Hwy and stopped in a breakdown lane on Saturday at about 4.20pm.
