Rapey Liberal culture is their undoing

Former Liberal staffer Brittany Higgins’ steel-eyed testimony around rape allegations saw spiders crawl from under rocks and spread in all directions last week. 

A four-wheel-drive and large caravan tipped onto its side on the Pacific Highway between the Brunswick Heads and Ocean Shores exits yesterday (Wednesday, April 11).

The police, Mullumbimby Fire and Rescue and Ambulance attended the scene at around 11.15am.

It had been reported that one person was still trapped in the car, however, they had managed to extract themselves by the time the Fire and Rescue crew arrived on the scene to assist.

The Fire and Rescue team were able to deal with fluid that was leaking from the vehicle and ensure that the gas cylinders on the caravan were disconnected to reduce the fire risks said a spokesperson for NSW Fire and Rescue.

The driver and passenger were assessed at the scene and no one required transport to hospital. The road was cleared by 12.15pm.
