Youths cut from wrecked vehicle
TWO Murwillumbah teenagers had to be cut from their car on Monday morning after it hit a pole on North Arm Road.
Tweed Heads Police sergeant Garry Jardine said it appeared the 19-year-old male driver lost control in the wet conditions at 8.15pm.
“The passenger and driver were trapped for half an hour,” Sgt Jardine said.
“The VRA (Volunteer Rescue Association) cut them out.”
The provisional-licence driver and 14-year-old male passenger, both from Murwillumbah, were transported by ambulance to the Murwillum- bah District Hospital.
“Both suffered injuries that were not life threatening,” Sgt Jardine said.
“Police are still investigating.”
A spokesperson from the North Coast Area Health Service yesterday said the 14-year-old boy had since been transferred to the Mater Private Hospital in Brisbane.
“The 19-year-old remains in the Murwillumbah hospital under observation.
“He is in a stable condition.”
