A TEENAGER has died following a serious accident in a suburban Coffs Harbour street at the weekend.

The 18-year-old was placed on life support in a critical condition following the crash in Robin St on Sunday around 2pm.  

Ballina-based police crash scene investigators are continuing to investigate the single-vehicle crash.

Police said a red Nissan Pulsar, driven north on Robin St, failed to negotiate a right-hand bend and left the roadway.

The car hit a fence and crashed down a stormwater drain where it came to rest on its roof.

The three occupants remained trapped in the vehicle until police and other emergency services arrived.

The 17-year-old male driver and an 18-year-old female passenger escaped serious injury, police said.  

The 18-year-old was treated at the scene by ambulance paramedics and conveyed to Coffs Harbour Base Hospital with major head and spinal injuries.

He was later airlifted to Newcastle's John Hunter Hospital.  

The p-plate driver was submitted to mandatory blood and urine tests and the extensively damaged pulsar has been seized for mechanical examination.

Police would like to speak to anyone who witnessed the crash.
