A man died after allegedly speeding away from police and crashing into a tree on Tumbulgum Road near Murwilumbah around midnight.

Police were called to the location following reports of an intoxicated man.

As police arrived a vehicle sped off from the scene and subsequently crashed into a pole a short distance up the road.

The man driving the car died at the scene; the other man travelling in the vehicle was not injured.

That investigation will be overseen by the Professional Standards Command.

All information will be provided to the Coroner.
