A man has had a miraculous escape this morning, after his vehicle was crushed by tonnes of wooden logs on the state’s mid-north coast.
The 25-year-old was driving out of Kendall along Lorne Road, when he spotted a log truck rounding the corner and its load starting to tip.
He began braking, but the timber landed on top of the vehicle, trapping him inside.
Emergency services arrived on scene shortly after 7am and extracted him from the car.
He was taken to hospital with just a cut above his eye.
