Upper Wilson’s Creek residents and people using Wilsons Creek Road are advised to avoid crossing the still-flooded causeways after a car ran off the edge of one and was partially washed into the creek this morning.

Byron Shire Echo distributor Alex Olup spotted the blue 4WD being picked up by a tow-truck earlier today. It is not known if anyone was injured.

Mr Olup says he has left the copies of the Echo that he would normally have distributed beyond the causeway at Threeways Store for collection once the waters subside, which he hopes will be in time for their weekly pizza night tomorrow.
