Po­lice probe death af­ter ute rollover

Albany Extra - - Extra News -

A 46-year-old Nar­ro­gin man died af­ter he lost con­trol of his ute and rolled down an em­bank­ment in Nyabing last Satur­day morn­ing.

Ma­jor Crash de­tec­tives were in­ves­ti­gat­ing the fa­tal­ity, which brings WA’s 2017 road toll so far to 123 deaths — in­clud­ing 69 on coun­try roads.

Po­lice said the man was driv­ing a Ford Fal­con ute west on Nyabing-Pin­grup Road, which be­comes Rich­mond Street in the Nyabing town site.

As he en­tered the 50km/h zone for the town, the driver failed to ne­go­ti­ate a left-hand bend, veered off the road and rolled down an em­bank­ment. A passerby dis­cov­ered the ve­hi­cle about 12.35am and called emer­gency ser­vices.

CPR was per­formed un­til St John Am­bu­lance paramedics ar­rived, but the man — a Nyabing lo­cal — died at the scene.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion can call Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 000 or re­port on­line at www.crimestop­per­swa.com.au.
