A 24-year-old motorcyclist has died on the Northern Rivers.

Police say a 24-year-old man died Sunday afternoon after a car crash in the Northern Rivers.

The man was reportedly riding a motorbike east on Marom Creek Road, Marom Creek, southeast of Lismore when he crashed head-on with a Nissan Navara at the intersection of Youngmans Creek Dip Road.

Police say the man was thrown from his bike and sustained serious injuries.

Members of the public tried to resuscitate him but the man died at the scene.

A 69-year-old man had been driving the Nissan and was uninjured, but taken to Lismore Base Hospital as a precaution and to give police a blood sample.

Richmond Police District officers are investigating and say a report will be prepared for the Coroner.
