One person suffered moderate injuries after two cars collided head on on the Coastal Highway at about 11am on Monday.
Senior constable Steve Muirhead says one of the cars appeared to have crossed the centre line and collided head on with the other vehicle.
The driver of the second car was uninjured in the accident.
Steve says it was “unbelievable” that neither drivers suffered any serious injuries in the accident which left both vehicles strewn on the side of the road and severely damaged.
The Coastal Highway is now open after being closed for a short time.
