The Pacific Highway has reopened following a fatal accident at Grafton last night.

Wet weather is thought to have been a factor in the accident, which took place about 8pm (Monday November 11).

A man driving a Toyota Corolla was heading north on the Pacific Highway, about 300 metres north of Tyson Street, when he apparently swerved and crashed head on with a truck.

The driver of the Corolla died at the scene.

The truck driver was taken to Grafton Base Hospital suffering shock.

The road was closed for some time while local police conducted investigations into the accident.

Anyone who may have witnessed the crash is asked to call Grafton Police Station on 6642 0222 or crime stoppers on 1800 333 000.
