A man has died following a crash at Chinderah overnight.

Just before 12.30am (Tuesday 24 January), emergency services were called to the northbound lanes of the Pacific Highway, at Chinderah, following reports of a two-vehicle crash.

Police were told the driver of a silver Mitsubishi sedan left the roadway and crashed into the rear of a parked B-double truck, before becoming engulfed in flames.

After Fire and Rescue NSW extinguished the blaze, a body of a man was found in the vehicle, which is yet to be formally identified.

Officers from Tweed/Byron Police District established a crime scene, which was examined by specialist forensic police, and an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the crash commenced.

A report will be prepared for the information of the Coroner.
