Road worker injured

A BANORA Point Upgrade Alliance worker was hit by a car on the Pacific Highway at Sleepy Hollow yesterday afternoon.

The female P-plate driver swerved to the left, hitting the man who was directing traffic at road works.

Sergeant Brett Gibson from Kingscliff police said the man's condition was stable but he was taken to Tweed Heads Hospital with a knee injury.

“He was still conscious when he was put in the ambulance, but he may have a broken knee cap,” Sgt Gibson said.

He said the incident was an “accidental case of wrong place, wrong time”.

The woman was driving with her brother in the passenger seat and was travelling over the Burringbar Creek bridge at around 2pm on the Pacific Highway when the incident occurred.

Sergeant Doug Conners said investigations into the circumstances of the incident were continuing.
