One thought on “Young man loses arm in ute crash at Coalcliff on Sunday

  1. Hearing the sirens headed up the road from Bulli as we walked along the path next to the distributor raised our attention. But not as much as hearing the unmarked police car roaring by as an escort for the Paramedics to prepare the Hospital rd intersection before then the full throated roar through Bulli to clear the path ahead. Thanks to our Emergency Services teams for the daring and selfless service to the vulnerable.
