A man has died after the hot rod he was driving rolled in a single-vehicle crash on Tweed Valley Way, Stokers Siding, on Sunday (March 10).

Just after midday, the 1930 Ford hot rod was travelling south when it left the road and rolled.

The driver, a 52-year-old man, died a short time after being freed from the vehicle by emergency services.

A male passenger, aged 63, was taken to Gold Coast University Hospital in a stable condition.

Officers from Tweed/Byron Police District are investigating the incident.
