Police investigating the death of a man in Tweed Heads last week are appealing for public assistance.

Just before 9.30pm on Thursday, 27 September, 2018, officers from the Tweed-Byron Police District identified a white Mazda 121 hatchback travelling above the speed limit on the M1.

A short pursuit occurred; however, it was terminated due to the manner of driving.

Police later found the Mazda had left the road and hit a tree. No other vehicles were involved in the crash.

The driver, a 22-year-old man, was taken to Tweed Heads Hospital where he died.

A critical incident team comprising officers from Coffs/Clarence Police District will investigate the circumstances surrounding the crash.

That investigation will be subject to independent review.

As the investigation continues, officers are appealing for any witnesses or anyone with dash cam vision, particularly on the M1 between Kennedy Drive and Kirkwood Road about 9.30pm on Thursday 27 September 2018, to come forward.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au. Information is treated in strict confidence. The public is reminded not to report crime via NSW Police social media pages.
