Duranbah man killed

A DURANBAH father-of-two was killed on Saturday night when the car he was in hit a power pole.

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.
