The crash happened 30 minutes after police were called to a separate two-vehicle smash at the same intersection.

Both drivers of that incident were treated at the scene for minor injuries, NSW Police said.

The man's death follows a hit-and-run incident involving a cyclist near Griffith on Sunday when a 33-year-old man was struck by a car and died at the scene.

Detectives set up a strikeforce to investigate the death.
