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.
