A popular young local man has died following a two-car crash near on Bangalow Road at Bexhill early yesterday evening.

Just after 6pm yesterday (February 5), a Toyota Corolla travelling south appears to have lost control while negotiating a bend in the road, colliding with a a Hyundai sedan travelling north.

The 19-year-old driver of the Corolla, from Clunes, was taken to Lismore Base Hospital with serious head injuries and placed into intensive care. He died about 3am this morning.

The 54-year-old driver of the Hyundai, from Mullumbimby, was also transported to Lismore Base Hospital where he was treated for spinal injuries.

Lismore mayor Jenny Dowell wrote a condolence message on her Facebook page to friends and family of the young man this morning.

‘So many young people (and older ones too) are shattered this morning. Please comfort each other and treat yourselves with gentleness today and for the days to come.

‘Our community is ready to wrap our arms around you and your friend’s family in loving kindness and shared sorrow.’

Police investigations into the incident are continuing and a brief will be prepared for the information of the Coroner.
