Another horror smash on our local roads

THERE has been another horror smash on our local roads this afternoon.

Early reports indicate several people have been injured in a head on accident involving two cars at Upper Orara.

It occurred at around 5.30pm on the Upper Orara Way, about 5km west of the Karangi General Store and involved a red Kia SUV and a silver Corolla.

It is understood that two women and a boy have been injured and treated by NSW Ambulance paramedics at the scene.

The women have suffered leg and upper body injuries.

It comes less than a week after a shocking single-car accident near Dorrigo.

A seven-year-old girl was trapped for some time in the mangled wreckage.

The 28-year-old driver has since been charged with a string of offences in relation to the accident.

Coffs/Clarence Chief Inspector Brendan Gorman had stern words for local drivers following a horror car crash inland of Coffs, at Dundurrabin, last week.

It prompted a desperate plea from Coffs/Clarence Chief Inspector Brendan Gorman to take care on the road.

"People are driving cars and killing themselves. People are killing passengers, killing family members.

"A motor vehicle is a dangerous weapon."
