A motorcyclist has died at the scene of a crash with a van at the intersection of Ballina Road and Bruxner Highway, Alstonville, yesterday afternoon (Monday August 20).

The driver, a 33-year-old woman, was taken to hospital for mandatory tests.

Inquiries are continuing by officers from the Far North Coast Crash Investigation Unit.

  1. How many people have to be injured or killed before something is done about this lethal intersection? To have stopped traffic turning across an 80 km/h flow of traffic is madness. Not only is there a lot of elderly people who use this intersection to travel to Lismore, the setting sun & the fact its positioned on a hill is also a recipe for disaster.
