Police charge woman over collision with police motorcyclist

Crash investigators have charged a woman in relation to a collision with a police motorcyclist on the state’s Mid North Coast.

Just before 11am on Sunday 30 December 2018, a Traffic and Highway Patrol motorcyclist stopped a black Subaru hatchback on the Pacific Highway, near Cockburns Lane, Warrell Creek, about 20km south of Nambucca Heads.

As the officer was dealing with the driver for a traffic related matter, another vehicle – a Mazda 2 – hit the stationary motorcycle and officer, before colliding with the Subaru.

The male senior constable attached to the Traffic and Highway Patrol Command was treated at the scene by NSW Ambulance paramedics before being taken to Coffs Harbour Hospital with a broken leg.

The female driver of the Subaru was uninjured.

Today (Tuesday 19 March 2019), crash investigators issued a 70-year-old woman with a Future Court Attendance Notice for negligent driving occasioning grievous bodily harm injury – first offence.

She is due to appear in Macksville Local Court on 23 May 2019.
