Police are looking for a man they believe can help with their investigations into a fatal crash at Tweed Heads on Friday afternoon.

About 1pm on Friday November 30, a northbound Toyota Corolla and two southbound vehicles – a taxi and a van – collided on the Pacific Highway.

The male driver of the Toyota died at the scene.

The female driver of the van was taken to hospital with serious injuries while the male taxi driver was treated for minor injuries.

Police from Tweed/Byron Local Area Command are investigating the circumstances surrounding the crash and have renewed their appeal for anyone with information about those involved to come forward.

They are particularly interested in speaking to a Caucasian male in his 30s, who was driving a white VN or VP series Holden Commodore in the area at the time of the accident. The Commodore may have been a Queensland registered vehicle.

The man is described as having short hair and a solid muscular build. At the time of the crash he was wearing coloured board-shorts and no shirt.

Investigators would like to speak to anyone with information about the Commodore or its driver, witnesses to the incident, or the events leading up to it.

Police will prepare a report for the Coroner outlining the full circumstances surrounding the crash.
