Eastbound lanes of the Gwydir Highway were temporarily closed at Jardine Road early this afternoon following what appeared to be a minor car accident.
Inverell Police confirmed that the local highway patrol were called out to a two vehicle accident on the the intersection just before 2pm today, Tuesday, October 9.
The vehicles were later removed from the accident site by a towing and salvage company. No injuries were reported.
The cause of the incident is currently unknown, with investigations continuing. Current reports indicate the accident was minor in nature.
Late last week, NSW police reminded motorists to take extra care on the roads as school holidays continue, with wet weather warnings forecasted for much of the state.
“It goes without saying – rain makes the roads slippery, and motorists need to drive to the conditions, and if required, slow down or pull to the side and wait for the heavy weather to pass,” acting assistant commissioner of the Traffic and Highway Patrol Command Julie Middlemiss said.
“I know I sound repetitive but this messaging should make you think twice before making a reckless decision that affects the lives of you or other road users.
“You are better off arriving late at a destination, than not at all,” Acting Assistant Commissioner Middlemiss said.
