Fatal Crash - Central Australia


A 31-year-old female cyclist has died following a crash with a bus last night in Central Australia.

Detective Sergeant Mick Schumacher of the Major Crash Investigation Unit said the incident occurred about 5km west of Mt Ebenezer Roadhouse at around 9:15pm.

“The occupants on the bus were not injured as a result of the crash.

“Investigations are ongoing, however at this stage it appears as though alcohol and speed were not contributing factors in the crash.

“Police urge anyone who may have seen a woman riding a black bicycle along Lasseter Highway yesterday to contact them on 131 444.”

The Northern Territory road toll now stands at 33 compared to 40 for the same time last year.
