Four people have lost their lives in NSW during the June long weekend, one of them in the Riverina.
The man, believed to be in his early 50s, died after a single-vehicle crash on the Barooga Road at Tocumwal.
The crash occurred after the Nissan Patrol the man was travelling in hit a tree.
The wreckage was discovered around 6.30am on Monday by a passing motorist who alerted emergency services. Inquiries into the events leading up to the crash are still continuing.
Traffic and Highway Patrol Commander, Assistant Commissioner Michael Corboy, said today would be a master class in patience when travelling home after a three-day break.
"We are expecting more cars on the road today as people return from their holiday and would encourage everyone to plan their trip home by listening to the radio and having your passengers check social media applications such as Live Traffic," he said.
"If you are caught in traffic, be patient. You should not let your current circumstances tempt you into taking risks that place you or your family in more danger of being involved in a crash.
"Three of the four crashes that have claimed the lives of others have occurred on country roads."
