Police are investigating an incident at Kingscliff on Saturday in which a child was found uninjured in the wreckage of a stolen car which had hit a tree.

About 11am on Saturday, police from Tweed-Byron Local Area Command responded to reports of a stolen car and concerns a child was on board.

Police and paramedics found the girl, aged three-and-a-half, in the back seat of the wrecked Holden Commodore sedan in Vulcan Street, Kingscliff.

There was no sign of the driver, but a man in his forties, believed to be the child’s father, was arrested nearby. He was taken to Tweed Heads police station, where he was helping with inquiries.

Investigations into the events leading up to the crash are continuing.

Family and Community Services welfare staff will be notified about the child, deemed to be at risk.
