Traffic is back to normal on  Bangalow Road, after a three-car collision about 1km east of Friday Hut Road,  slowed peak-hour traffic to a crawl this morning.

The accident, which happened around 7am on a bend in the road just past Top Spot landscape gardening suppliers, involved a late-model Subaru Forrester, an older model Nissan and a Transit van.

Police are still investigating the cause of the accident, which ripped the driver-side wheel off the front of the Subaru and caused somewhat less damage to the other two cars.
