In yet another accident on the treacherous Bangalow Road, a utility rolled onto its roof at the base of Springvale Hill, near Clunes, yesterday afternoon.
Just hours later a second car rolled off the road at Coorabell.
Emergency services were called to the Springvale Hill site around 3.15pm yesterday afternoon, where the white Holden Rodeo had rolled onto the side of the road.
Despite reports that people were trapped inside the vehicle, both the driver and passengers had managed to get out by the time emergency services arrived.
Police say they were treated at the scene and two were taken to hospital by road ambulance for further treatment.
Police are continuing their investigations into the crash but say the most likely explanation was a diesel slick on the wet road at the base of Springvale Hill.
Coorabell Road roll
At around 5.50pm a car driven by a local woman ran off the Coorabell Road, near the intersection of Newes Road, rolling down an embankment and coming to rest against a tree.
Brunswick Valley Rescue (BVR) were on the scene, together with police, fire and ambulance.
It took two-and-half-hours to retrieve the driver, the sole occupant of the vehicle, who was trapped by confinement and compression.
BVR’s Nick Zamit said the job was made more difficult by the precipitous position of the car, resting up against a tree on a steep slope.
