A second person has died following the two-vehicle crash in Mullumbimby on Father’s Day.

About 11.45am on Sunday, emergency services were called to Mullumbimby Road, about 2km north of Mullumbimby following reports of a crash.

A vehicle travelling west had collided with a vehicle travelling east in the east-bound lane.

Emergency services attempted to revive a 79-year-old woman from the east-bound travelling vehicle, however she died at the scene.

An 80-year-old man from the same vehicle was flown to Gold Coast University Hospital in a serious condition. The 80-year-old man died in hospital yesterday (Thursday 5 September 2019).

A 28-year-old man from the west-bound travelling vehicle was flown to Gold Coast University Hospital in a serious condition.

A brief will be prepared for the information of the Coroner and the circumstances surrounding the crash are currently being investigated by the Traffic and Highway Patrol Command.

  1. I came up from Sydney last week and im.more.nervous here driving then i am down there. Seriously people need to slow down man.
    So many unneccessary deaths.
    Very sad and concerning.

    • That’s exactly what I use to think when I moved from Sydney to Byron Bay. It’s crazy how fast they drive in country areas. This is a very sad ending, especially for the elderly.
