Close call for holiday makers

A YOUNG holidaying family, including a 14-month-old toddler, were lucky to escape serious injury yesterday following a two-car collision in Chinderah.

The accident occurred about 3.30pm NSW time at the intersection of Chinderah Bay Drive and Wommin Bay Road, leaving one of the cars, being driven by Ipswich woman Carmen Farrely, on its side.

The passenger, Richard Barrow, 26, was taken to Tweed Hospital by ambulance.

Their 14-month-old son Mitchell Barrow, was taken to hospital as a precautionary measure.

A North Coast Area Health Service spokeswoman yesterday said all three were in a stable condition.

Police were last night trying to establish who was at fault in the accident.
