Two men killed after road rage fight spills onto highway at Woodburn

Emergency services were called to the Pacific Highway about 5km south of Woodburn about 8.10pm last night with reports of a crash involving two pedestrians and a truck.

The two male pedestrians had suffered critical injuries and died at the scene, NSW Police said in a statement last night.

The male driver of the truck, 35, was uninjured in the crash and was taken to Ballina Hospital for mandatory blood and urine testing.

Police established a crime scene and are investigating the circumstances of the crash. Multiple reports suggest witnesses saw the two men involved in a road rage fight before the crash. The pair reportedly began brawling and the fight spilt onto the highway before the fatal crash.

The Pacific Highway remained closed for several hours last night between Woodburn and New Italy but was reopened this morning.
