Driver given negligent driving infringement notice

A 36-year-old Parkes woman was issued with an infringement notice for negligent driving after her car ran off the road on Friday afternoon.

Emergency services were called to the scene of the single motor vehicle accident at 2.30pm on Friday.

The woman was driving a silver Mitsubishi Magna east on Webb Street when she lost control on a bend and came to rest in a culvert on the southern side of the road. 

The impact deployed the car's airbags. 

Three passengers were in the car at the time, 15 and 16 year-old Parkes females and a 15-year-old female from Forbes.  

The 15-year-old Parkes female, who was travelling in the front passenger seat, was taken to Parkes Hospital with minor injuries.

A 53-year-old Parkes man will appear in Parkes Local Court on Friday, October 6, for the offence of possessing a loaded firearm endangering life. 

The man was charged following investigations into an incident at a party on The Welcome Road, Parkes, on July 29, where a 16-year-old Parkes male was also charged with a number of firearms offences.
