April 19, 2017

Paramedics attended a serious two-car crash on Cobram South Rd on April 13.

Motorists are being urged to be careful on local roads after three people received serious injuries in a crash at Cobram early Thursday morning.

Emergency services were called to the two-car accident on Cobram South Rd about 1.20am, where one person was trapped in each vehicle.

Paramedics said a woman in her 20s was trapped in one of the cars for about 1.5 hours before she was freed.

She was treated by paramedics on the scene for leg injuries before being airlifted to the Royal Melbourne Hospital in a critical condition.

A second woman in her teens from the same car was treated by paramedics and taken to Goulburn Valley Base Hospital in Shepparton in a serious condition with back and spinal injuries.

A man in his 20s from the second car was also taken to Goulburn Valley Base Hospital in a stable condition with leg injuries.

Boat motor explodes

A person was injured after a motor on a boat exploded last week, which was anchored off the Murray Riverside Caravan Park boat ramp at Tocumwal.

Police said the boat owner and three others were on board, when the owner’s daughter re-started the motor after it had stalled, when there was an explosion.

The engine cover was blown off the boat and the engine caught fire, and all passengers jumped from the boat into the water.

One of the passengers sustained a back injury and was taken to Goulburn Valley Base Hospital for treatment, while the other passengers sustained minor burns on their legs and backs.

NSW Fire and Rescue and police attended, and there was minor damage to the boat.
