4wd, caravan slam into rail

TRAFFIC on the Pacific Highway was interrupted yesterday when a four-wheel-drive car towing a caravan crashed into a guard rail.

The driver of the vehicle told police another driver had cut in front of him, causing the accident about 12.15pm.

It is understood the silver Toyota four-wheel-drive clipped the guard rail on the left side of the south-bound lane before swerving into the guard rail on the opposite side.

The vehicle ended up facing the wrong way, with one of its wheels caught on the wire railing.

The crash occurred about 500 metres south of the tunnel at Chinderah.

The driver, who told the Tweed Daily News he had been on his way to a gem festival at Lismore, was not injured.

Both the caravan and the four-wheel-drive car sustained damage in the crash.

The car remained driveable, but the significant damage to front end of the caravan meant the vehicle had to be towed.

Police were unable to provide any further details on the crash late yesterday.
