COVID weekend summary: Aquarius and a new Tweed case

The Northern NSW Local Health District is encouraging residents and visitors to Byron Bay to get tested for COVID-19, after being notified of a number of confirmed cases in the area during the last week.

NSW police have charged a 22-year-old woman from Labrador in Queensland after she admitted to flipping her car on a roundabout at Banora Point last Friday (December 9).

At about 10pm a black Mazda was travelling south along Sexton Hill Drive at Banora Point when it collided with the gutter at a roundabout, causing it to flip and cross into the northbound lanes, coming to rest against a power pole.

Police drove upon the scene a short time later and located the woman who admitted to being the driver at the time of the collision.

A roadside breath test returned a positive result and she was taken to the Tweed Heads Police Station where a breath analysis indicated a reading of 0.141. She was issued with court attendance notices for mid range PCA, negligent driving and her licence to drive has been suspended.

There were no injuries as a result of the collision.
