Scooter crash

Tweed Daily News - - POLICE AND COURT -

■ A MAN rid­ing a mo­bil­ity scooter was hit by a car at Banora Point on Thurs­day af­ter­noon. Emer­gency ser­vices were called to Leisure Dr just be­fore 5pm after re­ceiv­ing re­ports of a ve­hi­cle hit­ting a per­son. NSW Am­bu­lance of­fi­cers at­tended to the pedes­trian while Banora Point fire­fight­erts se­cured the scene. The pedes­trian was trans­ported to hos­pi­tal via am­bu­lance. It is un­der­stood their in­juries were not se­ri­ous. Fire­fight­ers thanked pass­ing mo­torists for driv­ing safely through the changed traf­fic con­di­tions. “We’d also like to thank the two by-standers that as­sisted with controlling the traf­fic flow whilst emer­gency ser­vices were at work on this trau­matic in­ci­dent,” a rep­re­sen­ta­tive said.
