A fatal car accident involving one vehicle in Kulnura yesterday (May 24) draws attention to the risks that driving on the road can bring.
A female – believed to be in her late 50s – was driving a white Mitsubishi van on George Downes Drive near Gosford yesterday morning when it left the road and crashed at approximately 11:30, according to a police report.
The van rolled onto its roof and stopped in a clearing. The woman was found dead in the vehicle.
Investigations by the police are underway and a coroner’s report is being prepared.
Another incident that happened on New South Wales’ roads over the past few days is a police chase through Little Bay, near Sydney’s eastern beaches.
Police started the pursuit of a Holden Rodeo – believed to be stolen – at approximately 22:40pm.
Eventually the driver, a 34-year-old man, was stopped and arrested on Bunnerong Road.
His antics on the road could have risked the safety of others. Police have banned his driver’s licence until 2017.
The incident occurred on May 24 and the man is due to appear in Waverly Local Court today (May 25).
Although a preferred mode of transport, driving does not come without its own set of risks.
From car crashes to public transport accidents, the roads are not always a safe place – it is important to keep your wits about you at all times.
Whether you are travelling through busy traffic or alone on a highway, you may be at risk of a collision.
If you or a family member has been involved in an accident, you may want to know that there are compensation lawyers that can help you claim adequate reimbursements if you are eligible.
As some operate on a no win no fee basis, it could be worth your time to sit down and talk to someone following an incident – one of the personal injury lawyers in Sydney will be able to tell you whether or not you are eligible to make a claim.
Many people are unaware of the compensation they could be receiving. One simple conversation could shine a light on their situation and provide them with the support they need.
Payments could possibly cover medical expenses, economic loss – for example wages if you are absent from work – as well as compensation for pain and suffering, including post-trauma.
