Australia Day in the Tweed

The Tweed community will reflect, respect and celebrate what it means to be part of the unfolding national story on Australia Day.

Police say a man has died following a crash in Murwillumbah overnight.

Emergency services were called to Ewing Street, just after 8pm (Monday June 23), after reports a car had crashed into a guard rail and then into the front porch of a house.

Officers from Tweed/Byron Police District attended along with NSW Ambulance paramedics who commenced CPR; however, the 59-year-old driver – and sole-occupant – was unable to be revived.

No one else was injured and there was minor damage to the house.

A report will be prepared for the Coroner.
