Pacific Hwy crash at Ulmarra puts dad, baby in hospital

TUESDAY - 6.00AM: A PURPLE four-wheel-drive lay on its roof beside the Pacific Hwy as a man from Far North Queensland and his baby daughter were rushed to Coffs Harbour Base Hospital in an ambulance yesterday afternoon.

The two are the latest crash victims of New South Wales's most deadly road, but luckily both of them are understood to be okay.

A police spokesman said yesterday, 5km north of Ulmarra, the car drove off the road at about 11am, over the embankment next to the highway, through a fence and landed on its roof in an adjacent paddock.

The father involved is understood to have been heading from Far North Queensland to the Central Coast.

Traffic on the highway was halted for a short time until one lane was opened and police were able to direct cars at a stop/go pace.

Crews from Grafton Ambulance Service, the Gulmarrad RFS and Grafton police were in attendance.

MONDAY - 12.30PM: A CAR lies on its roof at the side of the Pacific Hwy, five kilometres north of Ulmarra, after yet another crash on the state's worst road.

The crash happened about 250 metres north of Cowells Ln, just before midday.

Highway patrol officers and Grafton Police as well as the Gulmarrad RFS are in attendance. Traffic has been stopped in one lane with police operating stop-go traffic control.
