Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Coming out of the Cave

It was 2018, and in this crisis we witnessed the best that the world can be. We all watched in nervous anticipation as cave diving hobbyists from around the world became experts in a rescue never before attempted. It showed the power of collaboration for a higher purpose.

Police are appealing for information from the public after a cyclist was injured by a semi-trailer that failed to stop on the Pacific Motorway at Brunswick Heads last week.

About 8.15am on Friday 2 December 2016, a 62-year-old man was cycling north on the motorway, about a kilometre north of Gulgan Road, when he and the truck collided.

Police investigating the matter believe the truck driver may not have been aware of the collision.

The rider was assessed at the scene for a fractured arm and back pain and was taken by NSW Ambulance Paramedics to The Tweed Hospital for treatment.

Police from Tweed Byron Local Area Command are appealing for any witnesses to contact Tweed Heads Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
