A woman has died following a multi-vehicle crash in the state’s far north yesterday.

About 4.30pm (Monday 21 March 2022), a Mazda 2 travelling northbound on the Tweed Valley Way at Stokers Siding collided with an Isuzu truck in a southbound turning lane headed towards Stokers Road.

A third vehicle – a Toyota Corolla – was also impacted in the crash.

The 80-year-old female passenger of the Mazda died at the scene. The driver, an 83-year-old man, was trapped for a short time before being freed by emergency services; he was airlifted to Gold Coast University Hospital in a serious condition.

The 32-year-old male driver of the Isuzu and the 60-year-old female driver of the Toyota were both taken to Tweed Heads Hospital for observation and treatment for minor injuries.

Officers from Tweed/Byron Police District established a crime scene, which was examined and processed by the Far North Coast Crash Investigation Unit.
