Fatal – Hamilton Downs Station


The Territory road toll has risen to two after the death of an 18-year-old male in Alice Springs yesterday.

The man was riding a motorbike on the public access road to the Hamilton Downs Youth Camp when he crashed on Wednesday, January 20 about 2pm.

The man’s brother, who witnessed the crash, drove him to Alice Springs hospital.

A lack of safety equipment was believed to have contributed to the man’s injuries, which he succumbed to late yesterday.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.

The road toll was zero at the same time last year.
