Just after 9am (Thursday 10 September 2015), a semi-trailer carrying scrap metal was travelling on the Lismore Road towards Bangalow, about 6km west of Bangalow, when it tipped and landed on its side.

The driver, a 46-year-old man from Brisbane, was treated at the scene for minor injuries. He was conveyed by NSW Ambulance Paramedics to Byron Bay Hospital for treatment. No one else was injured.

The accident bears a remarkable resemblance to another single-vehicle accident at the corner of nearby Friday Hut Road in 2013, when the trailer of a truck carrying scrap metal also flipped on its side.

Original report: A truck has overturned on Lismore Road near the intersection of Binna Burra Road, just west of Bangalow, spilling much of its load of garbage and delaying traffic .

Emergency services are on the scene of the accident, which happened at around 9am.

NSW Ambulance paramedics are treating the driver for minor injuries.

Traffic is affected in both directions and the Traffic Management Centre advisers drivers to slow down an exercise caution.

  1. Nothing to worry about.
    It was not a Mills Transport truck.
    The journo did not get a statement from Mills who are folding.
    This is just a sensationalist bit of notoriety of the Bangalow to Lismore road.
    We need a superhighway through there.
    Nothing to worry about when journos don’t do their job.
    Where is the bloody news?
    No one died.
