One of two truck drivers involved in an accident on the Whiporie-Bungawalbin Road earlier today was driving a Richmond Valley Council vehicle.

The Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter assisted NSW Ambulance at the scene, south of Coraki, this morning.

The two-truck collision resulted in one driver being transported by road ambulance to Lismore Base Hospital with minor head injuries.

The helicopter medical crews assisted in the road transport of the 50-year-old male driver to hospital.

The second driver sustained only cuts and abrasions and was treated at the scene.

In a statement to the media, a council spokesperson said, ‘traffic controllers are onsite, and an investigation is underway by crash scene investigators. Council will be guided by their findings.

‘Council will be doing everything it can to ensure staff and the community are receiving the necessary care and attention such an incident requires,’ the spokesperson added.
