Two men have died and a woman has been injured in a crash on the Pacific Highway (M1) overnight (Sunday December 9).

About 7.45pm, a vehicle was travelling south on the highway, Glenugie, when it left the road, crashed through a fence, and rolled.

Two men in the car died at the scene. A female passenger was trapped in the vehicle.

Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter has now flown the 39-year-old woman to Gold Coast University Hospital in serious condition with head injuries.

Police from Coffs/Clarence Police Area Command remain on the scene conducting inquiries.
