A woman has been taken to hospital after veering off the road on the Lachlan Valley Way on Monday afternoon.

Police say that at 1pm on Monday, July 3, an 18-year-old female from Canberra was travelling south on the Lachlan Valley Way, about 22km north of Boorowa when the vehicle left the roadway for unknown reasons.

The vehicle traveled down an embankment and eventually came to rest. The front driver’s side wheel broke away and crushed in the driver’s foot well, causing a serious fracture to the driver’s right ankle.

The driver was treated by Boorowa Ambulance staff and with the assistance of the Boorowa Fire Brigade, removed from the vehicle and conveyed to hospital. She is expected to make a full recovery.  

Senior Constable Randall O’Brien would like to say thanks as usual to the wonderful staff of the Boorowa Ambulance and Fire Brigade.
