Truck overturns at Tabbimoble

A WOMAN suffered minor injuries when the truck she was driving overturned on the Pacific Highway at Tabbimoble yesterday morning.

The B-double truck carrying general freight was heading north on the Pacific Highway and was about 2km south of the New Italy complex and 25km north of Maclean when it rolled shortly before 5am.

The 46-year-old woman who was at the wheel of the Volvo semi-trailer complained of back pains and was taken by ambulance to Lismore Base Hospital.

The highway was partially blocked for four hours while emergency service cleared away the debris.

The accident occurred on what has become a notoriously black stretch of road where several fatalities have occurred in recent years.
