Police are still trying to establish how a man came to be unconscious by the side of a road at Goonellabah yesterday (Monday November 5).

About 5.40am, officers from Richmond Police District were called to Shearman Drive, Goonellabah, after reports a man was found lying unconscious on the roadway.

Upon arrival, police found a 49-year-old Goonellabah man with facial and head injuries.

He was treated at the scene by NSW Ambulance paramedics before being taken to Lismore Base Hospital with non-life-threatening head and chest injuries.

The 49-year-old male was later airlifted by Westpac Rescue Helicopter to Gold Coast University Hospital.

Police believe he may have been hit by a car and are asking for any members of the public who may have witnessed what happened to come forward.

As inquiries continue, anyone who was in the vicinity or has dash cam vision is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or go to to crimestoppers.com.au.
