UPDATE: TWO men have died in separate accidents in NSW, after their cars hit trees, taking the nation's holiday road toll to 16.
Six people have now died in NSW over the holiday period, taking to 16 the number of people killed in road accidents across Australia.
A sedan left the road on Murray St at Abernethy and ran into a tree about 2.30pm.
Police say the driver, whose age isn't known, was found by a passing motorist and later died at the scene.
It followed a similar accident at 1.45pm at Hargreaves, in the state's central west.
The driver was taken to hospital while emergency services worked for some time to free the passenger, who suffered fatal injuries.
Earlier in the day an elderly couple from Fiji were killed north of Holbrook in southern NSW and a two-car collision at Marsden Park in Sydney's northwest has left a 27-year-old man dead.
It is believed he was a father of five and lived only streets from where the accident occurred.
He was sitting behind the wheel of his cab stopped at a set of traffic lights on Anakie Rd when an out-of-control vehicle ploughed into his car at 6.15pm, police said.
A Holden commodore travelling on the Midland Highway toward the city suddenly veered far to the left at high-speed driving straight into the side of the parked cab.
Authorities said the taxi driver died on the scene. The other driver was last night helping police with their inquiries.
