Super swim challenge accepted

A group of mates from Brunswick Heads, Byron Bay and Lennox Head, recently formed a swim team known as the Anti Budgie Boardriders for the purpose of taking part in the Starlight Foundations Super Swim Challenge.  

Five people were injured in a three-car accident on Bangalow Road, Clunes, yesterday after an 18-year-old man lost control of the Ford Falcon utility he was driving.

The utility spun 360 degrees before slamming into a Toyota Camry. A passing Mazda Bravo was caught up in the accident, which happened in pouring rain.

Police say the utility driver blew a positive breath test at the scene and was taken to Lismore Base Hospital for a blood test.

It took three ambulances to transport all five injured to hospital and Bangalow Road was closed for an hour while emergency services cut three women from their wrecked Camry.
