Police continue to investigate a crash that killed two men on Sunday night south of Grafton.

Daniel Elliott, 42, from Grafton and Jared Ward, 29, from Tucabia were both killed when the silver Mitsubishi Lancer they were travelling in left the Pacific Highway at Glenugie, crashing through a fence and rolling.  A female passenger from Coffs Harbour was also in the vehicle and was airlifted to hospital on the Gold Coast.

Coffs Clarence Police have confirmed that they have information that a second vehicle may have been involved moments before the fatal crash.

Detective Acting Inspector Peter O'Reilly told Triple M that they are now looking for a blue commodore.

"Two cars were seen driving erratically and at speed just prior to the collision", he said.

"A further car, a blue commodore was seen in the area, and we are seeking any dashcam footage from the public", Det Acting Inspector O'Reilly said.

Some media reports on Thursday suggested that the incident may have links to Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs, with one of the men being a member of the Nomads, however according to Police, they are yet to find a link.

"We haven't found any evidence to suggest that the incident that has occurred is in any way linked to any type of Outlaw Motorcycle Gang feud".

Police say they still have not found any evidence that a firearm was involved, but are not ruling it out.

The investigation continues.
