A man was killed earlier this morning when the vehicle he was driving left the road and rolled near Nimbin.

Police say that around 2.45am (Wednesday), police and emergency services were called to the intersection of Tuntable Falls Road and Gungas Road, following reports of a single car crash.

Initial investigations suggest a white Ford Falcon driven by the man, left the roadway on a bend and ended up on its roof.

The driver, and only occupant of the car, died at the scene. He is yet to be formally identified.

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

A report will be prepared for the Coroner.

Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Why are we so blasé about violent pornography?

Why is it a turn on to hurt us? Recent intersectional studies have shown that online misogyny and violent pornography are contributors to a sharp rise in domestic violence. In NSW alone, police attend 500 incidents every day. If there were 500 threats or incidents at banks, or to the government, we would be in a state of emergency. Instead we stop, shake our heads, we listen to good men in government speak empty words, make a few promises, and move on. If you’ve ever lived through violence, it’s pretty well what your abuser does after hitting you.
