Police are appealing for information following a head-on crash between two vehicles at Burringbar on Sunday night which left two adults and a child in a serious condition.

Just after 6.10pm on Sunday, emergency services were called to Upper Burringbar Road, about 2.5km from the Tweed Valley Way intersection, following reports of a two-vehicle crash.

A 30-year-old man was helped out of a white Toyota Hilux, while a 32-year-old woman and a six-year-old girl were helped from a Mitsubishi Challenger, after both vehicles appeared to have collided head-on.

Ambulance paramedics treated the three at the scene, before the man was airlifted to Gold Coast University Hospital suffering internal and head injuries and possible fractures.

The woman and child were taken to Tweed Heads Hospital, both suffering serious internal injuries.

Officers attached to Tweed/Byron Local Area Command, together with Crash Investigation Unit, attended and began investigations.

As they continue their inquiries, police are appealing for any witnesses to the crash to come forward and contact them.

Police are urging anyone with information about this incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Listening to the truth tellers

A long time ago my husband had to attend a meeting in Redfern. He works in the health and academic sector and it was a consultation with some First Nations clinicians and community workers. He arrived a little earlier for the meeting to the centre – not your typical clinical setting but a regular house. On arrival he was greeted by an older woman who led him to a table and offered him a cup of tea. They chatted. Had a laugh. She offered him a biscuit.
