Comedian, writer, and social commentator Jean Kittson has the ability to distil complex ideas into commonsense. Jean is one of the national treasures in conversation with Mandy Nolan and Fiona O’Loughlin at No Eggs for Breakfast, a comedic chat themed around life beyond fertility!

Police are investigating a single-vehicle accident at Coffee Camp, near Nimbin, over the weekend in which a man in his late 50s was killed.

About 5.45pm on Sunday, a man was walking along a bush track next to Nimbin Road when he came across a car on its roof in the bushes.

Police, NSW Ambulance Paramedics and Rural Fire Service volunteers attended the scene and found the dead man inside the vehicle.

An injured dog was also found near the vehicle and taken to a veterinary surgery for treatment.

Investigators believe the silver Ford Falcon was travelling south along Nimbin Road on Saturday when it left the road, became airborne, struck a tree and overturned.

Investigations continue and police will prepare a report for the Coroner.
