THREE TEENS INJURED FOLLOWING HORROR CRASH NEAR COFFS HARBOUR

Three teenagers were airlifted to hospital overnight after being seriously injured in a crash north west of Coffs Harbour.

Emergency services and two Westpac Rescue Helicopters were called to East Bank Road, Nana Glen around 9:30pm, following reports of a single vehicle crash.

It’s believed the driver of the Volvo sedan, an 18-year-old man, failed to negotiate a bend, left the road and smashed into a tree.

The man and his two female passengers, aged 16 and 17 were trapped for sometime until released by emergency services.

The P2-provisional driver and his 16-year old passenger both suffered serious crush related injuries.

Both were placed in a medically induced coma.

The 18-year-old driver was airlifted to Gold Coast University Hospital and his 16-year-old passenger airlifted to John Hunter Hospital.

Both are in a serious condition.

The 17-year-old passenger was transported to Coffs Harbour Hospital with minor injuries.

Police are investigating whether speed may have been a factor.
