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 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.
