"She's left the driveway, she's been struck by the sedan travelling on the highway towards Lismore,” a police spokesman said.

"Speed is not a factor, it appears she has misjudged the speed and distance of the sedan and has left the driveway.

"The sedan has struck the offside of the 4WD - where the driver's side is - she's taken quite a hit.”
