Fatal Crash - Coomalie Creek


A woman has died following a crash between a car and a road train on the Stuart Highway at 3.25pm this afternoon.

Watch Commander Geoffery Bahnert said the road train jack-knifed across the highway following the crash, blocking the road in both directions.

“A subsequent fire has burnt out the prime mover but the driver has escaped with minor injuries.

“Volunteer units from Adelaide River and Batchelor responded and have extinguished the fire.”

The Road Toll now stands 27 compared to 36 at the same time last year.
