A woman has been airlifted to Tamworth hospital in a serious condition after a car accident near Edgeroi on Thursday.
Emergency services were called to the scene on the Newell Highway at 3.45pm after a car crashed into the back of a stationary car.
An 84-year-old woman was airlifted to Tamworth hospital by the Westpac Rescue Helicopter in a serious condition.
