The Lord and that ‘dance’

Two things happened during the last week that perfectly illustrate the federal government’s position on religious discrimination in Australia.

Police will prepare a report for the Coroner following a fatal crash near Grafton yesterday.

About 7.40am today (Monday, September4), emergency services were called to the Pacific Highway at Clarenza, about 400 meters south of Centenary Drive.

Police have been told that a Toyota Camry was travelling south when another motorist observed the vehicle leave the carriageway.

The Camry travelled along a deep table drain for some distance before striking a cement drain and embankment.

The driver and sole occupant, a 77-year-old woman, was trapped in the vehicle.

She was eventually released from the vehicle and conveyed to Coffs Harbour Hospital in a critical condition.

The woman passed away about 10am today.

Officers from Coffs Clarence Local Area Command attended and will prepare a report for the information of the Coroner.
