Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding a fatal crash at Tumbulgum on Saturday.

Just after 2.40pm, emergency services were called to Riverside Drive following reports of a collision between a Harley-Davidson motorcycle and a Mitsubishi Triton towing a boat.

Officers attached to Tweed-Byron Local Area Command discovered 45-year-old male motorcyclist was located on the road with critical injuries. Paramedics failed to detect a pulse and commenced CPR, continuing to administer it as he was conveyed by ambulance to Tweeds Heads Hospital.

He was pronounced dead on arrival.

The Ballina Crash Investigation Unit undertook a full examination of the crash scene, and the 47-year-old male driver of the Triton was taken to Murwillumbah Hospital for mandatory blood and urine tests.

Both he and his 14-year-old passenger were not injured in the incident.

Police will now prepare a report for the Coroner.

Any witnesses who have not already spoken to police are urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
