Two women narrowly escaped with their lives after the car in which they were driving plunged into the Richmond River at Wardell late Friday afternoon.

According to police, the women had to be rescued by people at the scene after their car veered off the Pacific Highway and into the river at around 3pm on Friday.

A woman in her 20s was treated at the scene and transported to Lismore Base Hospital by road. A second woman in her 40s was taken to the hospital by Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter.

The incident and subsequent attempted retrieval of the car slowed traffic on the highway for several hours on Friday afternoon.
