Duranbah man killed
About 10.30pm on Saturday, police were called to Duranbah Road, about 15km south of Tweed Heads, after reports of a car leaving the road and hitting a power pole, a police statement said.
On arriving police and ambulance officers found a Commodore sedan had hit a power pole, ejecting a passenger, a 30-year-old man, who died at the scene.
The 25-year-old male river was trapped in the car and had to be removed by emergency services. He was taken to the Tweed Hospital in a serious condition.
A spokesperson from the North Coast Area Health Service yesterday said the man was in a stable condition in the hospital’s surgical ward.
