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).

The crash happened about 5.25pm, when a Nissan Cube and a Toyota Corolla collided on Kyogle Road at Fernside, 10km west of Lismore.

The Cube continued on after that impact and was then involved in a collision with a Nissan Dualis.

The driver of the Cube, a 48-year-old man, died at the scene.

A 12-year-old boy travelling in the Cube was taken to Lismore Base Hospital with multiple injuries. He was subsequently transferred to Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital in Brisbane.

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.

Police are urging anyone with information in relation to this incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au/
