A woman and two children were lucky to escape with only minor injuries following a single-vehicle accident on the Mitchell Highway on Tuesday night.
Emergency services were called to the accident at around 10pm on Tuesday evening, where their car had left the road near Shadforth - between Orange and Bathurst - and rolled before ending up on its side in a paddock adjacent to the highway.
The woman, age unknown, and the two children, who were believed to be aged eight and 10, were all treated on site by NSW Ambulance paramedics for minor injuries, which could have been far worse considering the severity of the crash.
All three were, however, still transported to Orange Hospital for observation, they were all in a stable condition following the accident.
