The force of the impact sent the Holden hurtling into a traffic pole.
The driver of the Holden, a 90-year-old woman, and her 94-year-old husband were trapped in the vehicle for some time.
The elderly woman was freed with only minor physical injuries.
Sadly, her husband sustained life-threatening injuries and was rushed to Royal North Shore Hospital where he later died.
The 43-year-old man behind the wheel of the Toyota escaped the collision without injury.
He was taken to hospital for mandatory blood and urine testing.
The road was closed for several hours while Crash Investigation Unit officers examined the scene.
