The Territory Road toll has risen to 26 following a fatal motor vehicle crash in Tiwi early this morning.
Superintendent Bob Rennie from the Traffic Operations Division said just after 1:00am Police received reports of a single vehicle crash that occurred on Trower Road near Henbury Avenue.
“A Toyota FJ Cruiser has left the road and struck a tree. Two men aged 32 and 35 tragically passed away at the scene. A third male aged 26 was conveyed to Royal Darwin Hospital in a stable condition.
“Major Crash investigation unit is currently on scene investigating the cause of the crash. It is believed speed may have been a factor.”
A file will be prepared for the coroner. The Territory road toll this time last year was 22.
