Fatal – Stuart Highway – Lake Bennett


The Territory road toll has climbed to 25 following the death of a 27-year-old male yesterday.

Duty Superintendent Rob Burgoyne said the single vehicle crash occurred 3km south of Chinner Road on the Stuart Highway around 2:15pm.

“It is believed the driver being the sole occupant of the vehicle, failed to negotiate a bend, causing the vehicle to leave the road and roll.”

“Tragically the driver was declared deceased at the scene.”

A file will be prepared for the coroner.
