Three people were lucky to escape serious injury on Friday as two vehicles were involved in collision around five kilometres from Young on the Temora Road.
Emergency services received the call at 4.15pm and upon arrival were met with a head-on collision between a 4x4 and a red Holden ute.
The two occupants of the 4x4 were transported to Young District Hospital with minor injuries for precautionary measures, while Fire & Rescue NSW crew worked to free the 26-year-old driver of the Holden utility who suffered serious injuries and was later conveyed to Wagga Hospital for observation.
It is understood he was discharged the following day.
NSW Ambulance Inspector Stephen Pollard said it was incredibly lucky there wasn’t more serious injuries as a result of what was a significant accident.
The accident prompted Fire & Rescue NSW captain, Ryan Terry, to remind motorists to be careful on the road.
“The roads are in bad condition because of all the weather – take it easy and slow down,” he said. “Drive to the conditions of the road.”
