Horrow weekend for crashes on NSW roads

A SPATE of horror crashes on New South Wales roads have left at least five dead since Friday, when a Toyota four-wheel drive with eight people inside rolled in Griffith, about two hours north-west of Wagga Wagga.

Paramedics treated all eight at the scene on Friday morning, but two men died at the scene and a third perished on Saturday morning.

On Friday night, a 65-year-old motorcycle rider was killed after his bike came in contact with a car on Friday afternoon in East Maitland, near the Hunter Valley.

In another incident, an 18-year-old man from Canberra crashed his motorcycle while riding on the Princess Highway at Nelligen outside Batemans Bay.

He left the road, hit a barrier, was tossed from the bike and later died in hospital.

Each of the crashes are now being investigated by police.
