Major Crash - Kings Highway Nelligen


About 7:45am on Wednesday 18/08/21, Officers attached to Batemans Bay HWP attended a collision involving a Mitsubishi Pajero that had collided into a Coach. Police will allege the male driver of the Pajero was travelling west along the Kings Hwy when he has crossed over solid double lines into the path of the coach which was travelling in an easterly direction. Both vehicles sustained significant damage and required towing from the scene.

Police say it was miraculous that no one were seriously hurt or killed and the fact that the bus was on a designated school run and would normally be carrying about 20 children however due to Covid, the bus was empty.

The male's drivers license was immediately suspended and he has been charged with several traffic and driving offences with further charges expected relating to driving under the influence pending the return of blood sample results.
