Northern NSW Local Health District has been notified of new venues of concern associated with confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the region.

The holiday season got off to a bad start on North Coast roads after a man was killed and four people injured in a crash involving three cars near Lismore on Friday (December 22).

A 27-year-old man travelling in the back seat suffered severe shock and was treated at Lismore Base Hospital. All three are from Horseshoe Creek.

The driver of the Corolla, a 41-year-old woman from Borabee, sustained cuts and abrasions, while the driver of the Dualis, a 26-year-old woman from Casino, suffered fractures and was treated at Lismore Base Hospital.

Inquiries are continuing and a report will be prepared for the information of the Coroner.
