Adam says it’s time for a Sunday bus for north Byron Shire

As many people are aware, there is no public transport in the north of Byron Shire on Sundays, making it difficult for people, young people in particular, to get to where they want to go. Adam Luck has decided to take action on this problem. 

A 30-year-old woman walking in Woodburn died on Sunday morning when a teenager driving a ute crashed into her, police said.

Emergency services were reportedly called to Woodburn’s Forest Road, about 34 kilometres south of Lismore in response to the incident around 10am.

Paramedics treated the woman on-scene but she could not be revived and died there.

Police said an 18-year-old male, who had been driving the green Toyota ute involved in the crash, returned a negative roadside breath test result.

Officers said the driver was helping with investigations and they would prepare a report for the coroner.

Anyone with related information or dashcam footage was urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

  1. Where the accident happened there is a dip in the road and hard to see cars or people I used to drive that road to uni and still. Use it to go to Lismore and more than on one occasion have lost sight of someone coming the other way in the dip in the road so not a good place to overtake the road needs to be lifted in that section to take the dip out a terrible tragedy no matter what the circumstances.
