A 69-year-old woman from Tabulam died and two men seriously injured after a head-on crash on the Bruxner Highway near Casino yesterday afternoon.

The accident involving two cars occurred around 3.50pm, two kilometres east of Mummulgum, closing the highway for some time.

The two injured men travelling in one of the cars were treated at the scene for neck and back injuries and taken  by ambulance to Lismore Base Hospital, where they were reported to be in a stable condition.

The 56-year-old driver of the second car and his 28-year-old passenger are from Mummulgum.

Portable traffic signs are in place at the scene this morning and motorists are advised to check for updates on the road’s status and available diversions at www.livetraffic.com.
