Police are calling for witnesses as they continue to investigate how a 45-year-old man sustained serious head and facial injuries on the state’s Mid North Coast earlier this month.

Around 9pm on February 1, a man was found on the side of River Street, at Woolgoolga, suffering significant head injuries.

Emergency Services were contacted and he was taken to Coffs Harbour Base Hospital.

He was then airlifted to Royal North Shore Hospital where he remains in a serious condition.

Police from the Coffs/Clarence Police District are investigating how the man received his injuries.

In particular, officers would like to speak with the drivers of two vehicles travelling north on River Street, at about 8:45 to 8:50 that night.

It is believed these two drivers may have seen the 45-year-old man before he sustained his injuries.

The first vehicle is described as a small grey/silver SUV wagon and the second vehicle is described as a small two-tone red and grey four-wheel drive.
