I first met Phil on a rain-soaked day outside my house in Brunswick Terrace, Mullum. It was an accidental encounter, but we soon got stuck into a conversation about the parlous state of Australian universities.

A brief will be prepared for the Coroner after a man and two children died in a two-car collision in near Casino this morning.

About 8.10am, police and other emergency services responded to reports of a collision between two sedans on McDonalds Bridge Road, Dyraaba, about 15km north-west of Casino.

On arrival, police found three people, a man and two children, who had been travelling in the same vehicle, had died as a result of the collision. Police believe they were sitting in the car, without their seat belts on, waiting for the school bus when the other car crossed onto the wrong side of the road collided with them at high speed. The impact of the accident. Media reports say the impact moved the stationary car some distance.

A three year old child from the other car has been airlifted to Lismore Base Hospital by Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter. The driver and a young boy who was a passenger were taken by road ambulances to Lismore Base Hospital in a stable condition.

A crime scene has been established and specialist crash investigators are en route from Ballina.

Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://www1.police.nsw.gov.au/
