A 49-YEAR-OLD man who died Saturday morning after crashing into a tree on Centre St Casino has been named by police as Peter Owen, of Casino.

A 42-year-old man who was a passenger in the Commodore had to be freed by rescue personnel.

He was treated at the scene by Ambulance Paramedics and taken to Lismore Base Hospital with minor injuries.

In another incident, a  36-year-old male died in a single vehicle accident on Main Arm Rd on Saturday night.

The Holden Commodore station wagon left the roadway and hit a tree and the end of the Williams Bridge over the Brunswick River at about 9.20pm.  

Police are preparing a report for the Coroner.
