Man dies following Cudgera Creek crash

A MAN has died following a four-vehicle crash at Cudgera Creek on Tuesday.

About 12pm last Tuesday, a 61-year-old man was driving a Holden Commodore sedan south along the Pacific Highway, Cudgera Creek.

A 78-year-old woman and her 84-year-old male passenger were also travelling south along the same road in a Toyota Corolla sedan, when the two vehicles collided.

The Toyota Corolla was seen to cross a median strip and enter the north-bound lanes, before it collided with a Kia travelling north, driven by a 26-year-old woman with a 31-year-old male passenger.

The Toyota collided with one more vehicle in the north-bound lanes - driven by an 18-year-old woman and with a 22-year-old female passenger - before coming to a stop.

Emergency services were called and the occupants of the Toyota Corolla were airlifted to Gold Coast Hospital, where the 84-year-old man died about 1pm Sunday.

The 78-year-old woman remains in hospital.

The remaining drivers and passengers involved in the incident received minor injuries and were taken to Tweed Heads Hospital.

They are urging any witnesses or anyone with information to come forward via Crime Stoppers.
