RICHMOND Police District have released the name of the man who died in a horrific two-vehicle crash on Kyogle Rd on Tuesday afternoon.

"To all my beautiful friends, I love you all and let this be a reminder to live your life to its absolute fullest, chase your dreams and be the best version of yourself you can be in every present moment.

"You never know how much time you have on this earth so make it count! Big, big love to all of the family; I can't even begin to imagine the heartache you're all going through."

Caleb Barsah: "Rest in paradise Dusk Watts. Lost for words mate, you are an absolute legend, just like the rest of the Lennox fam. Thinking of everyone up there in this tragic moment."
