Two people have died in hospital following a bizarre and serious car accident at Woodenbong, about 100km northwest of Lismore, last week.
About 9pm last Tuesday (September 27), a red Nissan 300ZX with five occupants was travelling on Mount Lindesay Road when it left the roadway and crashed into an embankment.
The unregistered car contained no seats and none of the passengers were wearing seatbelts.
The driver, a 20-year-old man, and two of the passengers – a 17-year-old girl and 16-year-old boy – were treated at the scene by NSW Ambulance Paramedics before being taken to Lismore Base Hospital.
The 20-year-old man was later transferred to the Gold Coast Hospital where he remains in a critical but stable condition.
The two other passengers, a 17-year-old boy and a 22-year-old man were airlifted to the Gold Coast Hospital and Princess Alexandra Hospital Brisbane respectively, in a critical condition.
The 17-year-old youth and the 22-year-old man both died on Friday (September 30).
A report will be prepared for the Coroner.
Police from the Crash Investigation Unit are continuing to investigate the incident and urge anyone who may have witnessed the crash to come forward.
