A woman has died and another is severely injured after a two-car accident on the Bruxner Highway on the outskirts of Casino yesterday afternoon.
At around 3.10pm, a Ford Falcon and a black Subaru Liberty collided about 1km out of town towards Lismore.
Both cars were flung from the road by the impact of the crash and occupants had to be cut from the wreckage by NSW Fire & Rescue and local VRA members.
The 57-year-old female driver of the Subaru died at the scene and the 50-year-old driver of the Falcon was rushed to Lismore Base Hospital in a serious but stable condition.
The four-year-old grandson of the Subaru driver escaped with only minor injuries and was placed in the care of relatives.
Police are still investigating the cause of the crash and anyone who witnessed the accident is requested to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
