Man killed in crash with motorhome on Pacific Highway

A MOTORCYCLIST has been killed in a horror crash with a motorhome on the Pacific Highway on the NSW North Coast.

The accident happened at Wardell, around 21km south of Ballina, around 10.15am on Saturday.

Police said the rider, a man believed to be aged in his 60s, sustained life-threatening injuries.


He was treated by paramedics at the scene but his injuries were too severe and he could not be saved.

Police confirmed the man was pronounced dead before he could be taken to hospital.

The man driving the motorhome was taken to Ballina Hospital for mandatory drug and alcohol testing. He was not injured.

The Pacific Highway was closed for around two hours while crews examined the scene and cleared the wreckage.

The highway has since been re-opened.

A report will be prepared for the Coroner.
