A man has died in a Christmas Day tragedy after a single-vehicle accident at Tabulam, east of Tenterfield.
About 8.30pm on Tuesday, emergency services were called to reports of a vehicle overturned on Plains Station Road, Tabulam, about 9km south of the Bruxner Highway.
It’s believed the vehicle left the road, before crashing into a fence, rolling, and overturning, causing the driver to be ejected from the vehicle, police said.
The driver, a 52-year-old man, died at the scene.
Police set-up a crime scene and are investigating the circumstances surrounding the crash.
A report will be prepared for the coroner.
The accident comes in the midst of Operation Safe Arrival – the police blitz on NSW roads over the festive season.
Already two people including a child have lost their lives on local roads in the lead-up to Christmas after accidents at Moonbi, near Tamworth, and Coolatai.
Double demerits are in force throughout the operation until midnight on January 1.
