TERRIFYING: Dashcam vision shows highway crash
Terrifying vision of an incident on the new Pacific Highway last month has been posted to Facebook.
Coffs/Clarence police are still investigating the incident, including this dashcam footage and have not laid any charges over the crash. People who have more information on the crash are urged to contact the police or Crimestoppers.
The driver, who identifies himself as "John", posted on the Dashcam Owners Australia Facebook page, and said on February 7, he was driving his van south after purchasing it and his dashcam footage shows the time as 5.51am.
At first, the vision shows a driver in the southbound lane flashing his lights in warning.
As he rounds a slight bend north of the Maclean interchange, another set of headlights appear, this time in his northbound lane, coming straight towards him.
As the lights get closer, he tries to swerve to avoid the oncoming car, but the oncoming vehicle collides with the right side of his van, and the vehicles come to a stop.
Emergency services attended the crash, and the driver of the oncoming vehicle was trapped for a short time before being flown to Gold Coast University Hospital by the Westpac Rescue Helicopter.
