A contributed photograph showing the scene of yesterday’s (September 4) accident at Eungella.

A delivery driver for Murwillumbah butchery Sunnyside Meats is nursing his (minor) wounds after the ute he was driving spun off Tyalgum Road, Eungella, yesterday afternoon (Tuesday, September 4).

As this photograph shows, the impact with a tree and a sign on the edge of the road caused the refrigerated tray top to fly off the vehicle and completely destroyed the back axle.

The driver, however, came off relatively unscathed, with Arron of Sunnyside Meats saying the employee left hospital after examination.

Arron said they had given the driver the day off as he was ‘a bit sore’.

A spokesperson for NSW Ambulance said the patient was taken to Murwillumbah Hospital in a stable condition.
