A man died yesterday in a two-vehicle crash at Tuncester, about 10km west of Lismore, police say.

About 3.10pm a Nissan Pulsar sedan and a Holden Epica sedan were travelling in opposite directions on Kyogle Road when they collided near the intersection of Leycester Road.

A number of witnesses stopped to help, but the driver and sole occupant of the Nissan Pulsar, a 25-year-old man, died at the scene.

The 17-year-old male driver of the Holden Epica suffered serious internal and leg injuries and was taken to Lismore Base Hospital.

He was later transferred to Gold Coast University Hospital in a serious but stable condition.

His passenger, a 16-year-old boy, suffered lacerations and was taken to Lismore Base Hospital in a stable condition.

Officers from Richmond Police District established a crime scene and are investigating the circumstances surrounding the crash.
