Police are investigating a fatal crash in Ramornie, near Grafton last night, which killed the 17-year-old female driver and injured her 18-year-old passenger.

About 6.40pm (Tuesday September 1), emergency services were called to Ramornie Station Road, following reports of a crash.

Initial investigations suggest a Toyota Rav4 was travelling on Ramornie Station Road, when it left the roadway and crashed into a tree.

The driver, a 17-year-old girl, died at the scene.

The passenger, an 18-year-old girl, was treated at the scene by Ambulance Paramedics before being taken to Grafton Base Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

No one else was injured during the incident.

A crime scene was established and investigations into the crash are continuing.

  1. Yet another young life lost on our roads. Will we ever find out if alcohol, drugs and speeding were involved? There’s a good argument for raising the driving age to 25, but that’s a forlorn hope.
