A south-bound b-double truck collided with a north-bound sedan on the Pacific Highway at Knockrow yesterday afternoon, sending it spinning off the roadway.
The truck itself then crossed onto the wrong side of the road and ran into a power pole, which snapped, and ploughed off the road in front of the Macadamia Castle.
The female driver of the Holden Astra was taken to hospital for observation but is not believed to be in a serious condition. The car, however, was a write-off with its right-hand front wheel completely ripped off.
The stretch of road recently had its speed limit reduced from 100km/h to 90km/h, although locals say they had been campaigning for it to be reduced to 80.
Even though the road has been re:zoned at 90 k’s many of the traffic is still travelling at 100 k’s. Drivers that have travelled the raod many times before are not adhering to the new speed limit.
