Fatal Rollover Daly River Road


A single vehicle rollover about 2kms from the Peppimenarti turn off has killed the driver and one passenger.

Duty Superintendent Daniel Shean said Police on the scene have confirmed a further five people were in the vehicle when the crash occurred and all have suffered injuries.

“They have been transported to the Palumpa Clinic for assessment.  We understand a youth has sustained critical injuries.”

Superintendent Shean said alcohol appears to have been a contributing factor.

Police ask anyone who may be travelling on Daly River Road to be aware that emergency vehicles are in the area and to take care.

The two deaths take the NT Road Toll to 30 compared to 37 at the same time last year.
