TUCABIA MAN IN­JURED IN COLLISION

A Tucabia man was ad­mit­ted to the Ma­clean Hospi­tal on Satur­day night af­ter a head-on-collision on the Wooli Rd, two-and-a-half miles from Ul­marra. He is Al­lan Che­val­ley (26), who was a pas­sen­ger in a four-wheel drive ve­hi­cle driven by his fa­ther, Ian Che­val­ley (50), of Cold­stream Rd, Ul­marra.

Che­val­ley suf­fered lac­er­a­tions to his face and head in the ac­ci­dent. He was trans­ported by pri­vate car to Ma­clean for ad­mis­sion to hospi­tal. The other ve­hi­cle in­volved in the collision was a sta­tion sedan driven by Kevin Clark (40), of Ul­marra. Ex­ten­sive dam­age was caused to both ve­hi­cles.

Ul­marra po­lice are in charge of in­quiries.

FARM­ERS KEEP WATCH ON WEATHER

Pri­mary pro­duc­ers on the Lower Clarence, who have ex­pe­ri­enced their sec­ond flood within a pe­riod of months, and who have been bat­tling with drought con­di­tions, are anx­iously watch­ing the weather. If the weather is kind in the next week or so, many losses may be averted, and the flood be one re­mem­bered for “nui­sance” only.
