A 28-year-old Murwillumbah woman was killed after the car she was driving ran off the road on Coolamon Scenic Drive, Coorabell, and collided with a tree at the weekend.
Police were alerted to the crash at around 7.25am yesterday but it’s believed the accident may have happened on Saturday night or early yesterday morning.
Police said the woman’s Subaru station wagon appeared to have left the roadway on a sweeping bend before colliding with the tree.
The vehicle sustained heavy damage.
An investigation into the accident is ongoing and a report will be prepared for the Coroner.
The dead woman’s name is yet to be released.
