Police are investigating a fatal crash on the notorious Bangalow Road near Clunes on Friday morning in which a local woman in her 30s died.

According to police, the woman lost control of her small Hyundai sedan after it hit the shoulder of the road and slid sideways into the path of an oncoming Nissan four-wheel-drive vehicle just south of the Stewarts Road intersection, at around 11.30am.

Both cars then rolled down an embankment, trapping occupants for some time. Police and rescue services freed the victims from the wreckage but the woman died at the scene.

The two men in the four-wheel-drive, aged 33 and 37, were taken to Lismore Base Hospital with minor injuries.

The road, one of the most congested rural roads in the region, which has claimed several lives in the past few years alone, was reopened around 2.30pm.

Tweed/Byron police are preparing a report for the Coroner.

Anyone with any information on the crash is urged to call Tweed Heads police on 07 5536 0999 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
