Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of a man involved in a single-vehicle crash near Alstonville on Monday night.

About 8.30pm on Monday (15 October), a Subaru WRX was travelling west on Rous Road, Rous, when it appears the car left the roadway and collided heavily with a number of posts and fencing. The car started to roll, eventually coming to rest on its roof.

Police and other emergency services attended; however, the man died at the scene.

A crime scene was established and investigations are continuing.

Police are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the crash to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

A brief will be prepared for the information of the Coroner.
