Man in hospital after car collision
A MAN was taken to Tweed Hospital yesterday afternoon after his car crashed on Barneys Point Bridge.
The Ashmore man lost control of his white Mitsubishi Magna about 3.30pm as he headed north on the Pacific Highway.
According to Tweed Heads Police Senior Constable Ian Mison it was a single vehicle accident.
He said the vehicle hit the bridge's centre barrier, then swerved across the highway and smashed into the traffic barrier on the other side of the road.
Paramedics attended and took the driver to Tweed Heads Hospital suffering neck injuries.
Snr Cnst Mison said police were still investigating the incident and were waiting on further information before deciding whether to hand out any traffic infringement notices.
There were no major traffic delays due to the crash as police were able to keep one lane of the highway open as the Magna was loaded on to a tow truck.
