Police are investigating whether speed contributed to a fatal crash at Nerang.

An 86-year-old Nerang man died in hospital after a Ford utility collided with a Honda Jazz in Nerang, around 3.15pm (AEST) Wednesday.

The 86-year-old driver of the Honda, a Nerang resident, was taken to the Gold Coast Hospital in a stable condition with suspected chest and pelvis injuries.
