A 52-year-old woman has died from injuries she suffered after a collision at an intersection in Murwillumbah yesterday afternoon.

The woman was rushed to Tweed Hospital after the accident, at the intersection of Nullum and Wollumbin streets in Murwillumbah around 3.45pm.

Police say the Holden sedan the woman was driving collided at the intersection with a Subaru sedan being driven by an 18-year-old man.

The Holden then continued across the intersection and hit two parked cars.

The woman was trapped in her car, sustaining serious head and chest injuries.

She was freed by emergency services before being taken to Tweed Heads Hospital in a critical condition, where she died.

The man sustained minor injuries to his right knee and was treated by ambulance paramedics at the scene.

No-one was inside the parked cars.

Firefighters removed the damaged cars from the scene.

A report on the fatality will be prepared for the coroner.

Anyone who witnessed the crash is urged to call Tweed Heads police on 07 5536 0999 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
