Crash leaves one in hospital

A MAN was taken to Dubbo Base Hospital in a serious condition following a crash at Elong Elong.

A spokesperson for the Ambulance Service NSW said emergency services were called to the Golden Highway site just after 2pm yesterday following reports of a single car crash.

She said paramedics treated the man at the scene for a fractured nose, chest tenderness, pain in one of his arms and a series of abrasions before he was taken by ambulance to hospital.

POLICE have warned residents to be careful of handing over personal details after a Dubbo resident alerted them to a scam attempt.

A spokesman for Orana Local Area Command said the astute resident reported a failed attempt by someone claiming to be from the "Australian federal government reclaim department" to lure the resident into parting with cash via Western Union deposit.

The would-be fraudster had told the resident that they were entitled to a GST refund.

The police spokesman urged anyone who received a similar call not to be fooled into parting with their cash, rather, they should find out which agency has called and check its credentials before providing personal information.

FIREFIGHTERS were called to two rubbish bin fires in the Dubbo CBD less than three hours apart.

A spokesperson for NSW Fire and Rescue said the first broke out about 10am yesterday outside the former Centrelink building on the corner of Macquarie and Wingewarra Streets.

The second occurred just before 1.30pm outside Westpac bank.

There were no reports of injuries.
