Two drivers and two child passengers have avoided serious injury after a car accident involving a Toyota Prado and Honda Accord in Griffith this morning (28 May).

Police Inspector Glenn Smith informed Region the incident occurred at about 5:40 am. A white Toyota Prado being driven by a 50-year-old male P1 Provisional Driver was travelling south along Sidlow Road.

As this vehicle approached the intersection with Stafford Road, the Prado allegedly failed to stop at the stop sign and travelled through the intersection.

A Honda Accord sedan being driven by a single male occupant eastbound on Stafford Road collided with the driver’s side of the Prado, causing it to spin 180 degrees and flip onto the passenger side of the vehicle.

NSW SES Griffith Unit promptly arrived on the scene and rescued both drivers and child passengers from the vehicles.

Hanwood Rural Fire Service, NSW Ambulance and NSW Police also attended the scene and assisted.

The driver of the Prado was still seated in the vehicle and held in by his seatbelt. The two children were removed from the Prado through the rear window and assessed as having no injuries by the NSW Ambulance paramedics.

Both drivers were also assessed by paramedics, cleared and did not require hospitalisation. Both drivers were breath tested for possible alcohol consumption and returned negative results.
