Fresh faces for Council elections

A very distinct, black flat-cap has just been thrown into the ring for the upcoming Byron Council elections, pegged for September 4.

Police are investigating a hit-and-run accident near Murwillumbah early on Saturday morning which left a 21-year-old man seriously injured.

The man was hit by a vehicle which did not stop as he walked along Cane Road on the town’s outskirts between 4.30am and 5am.

Police believe the man was walking towards Condong at the time of the accident, which left him with serious leg and internal injuries.

He underwent emergency surgery at The Tweed Hospital.

Crash investigators from Ballina are continuing their inquiries.
