Serious accident near Coramba

A MAN, 44, has been taken in a serious condition to hospital following a motorcycle accident near Coramba.

Police, the SES and paramedics were called to the scene on Eastern Dorrigo Way about 12.45pm.

An Ambulance Service of NSW spokesman said the man was catapulted off his machine after leaving the road, slamming into a tree and hurtling 15 metres down an embankment.

Rescuers had to delicately haul the man up to the road where he was treated by paramedics for chest injuries.

He was stabilised ahead of his journey to Coffs Harbour Health Campus.
