A female driver from Lismore has been charged with murder following a fatal crash at Cudgera Creek earlier this month.
About 8.30am on Friday, January 6, emergency services were called to the M1 Pacific Motorway at Cudgera Creek, near the Cudgera Creek Road off ramp, following reports of a crash involving a white Ford Falcon station wagon and a motorcycle.
The rider of the motorcycle, a 61-year-old man, was treated at the scene by NSW Ambulance paramedics but died at the scene.
The driver of the car, a 47-year-old Girards Hill woman, was not injured and was taken to Tweed Hospital for mandatory alcohol and drug testing.
Officers from Strike Force Rumbelow, established to investigate the incident, subsequently arrested the driver of the Ford who was taken to Lismore Police Station where she was charged with murder.
She was refused bail and was due to appear at Lismore Local Court on Saturday (January 28).
Police allege the woman intentionally hit the rider, who was not known to her.
Any witnesses who have not yet spoken to police, or any road users who may have seen a white Ford Falcon station wagon between the St Helena Tunnel and Cudgera Creek Road on the morning of Friday January 6, are urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au/
