A pedestrian has died after being hit by a car while walking at night on a highway in northern NSW.

The man, believed to be in his 20s, was struck just before 8pm on Saturday on the Pacific Highway at Tintenbar south of Byron Bay.

Paramedics rushed to save him but he died at the scene.

The man driving the car was unharmed but has been taken to hospital for mandatory testing.

In the early hours of Saturday morning, an 18-year-old driver was killed when he crashed his ute into a tree near Forbes.

The teenager lost control of the car, veering off Bedgerabong Road, police say.

It comes after a 32-year-old woman died when a car hit a pole on the Oxley Highway in the NSW northern tablelands near Gunnedah on Friday night.

The 54-year-old male driver was airlifted to John Hunter Hospital with critical injuries.
