Pilbara News - - News - Ali­cia Per­era

An el­derly woman was in­jured in a ve­hi­cle rollover in Mill­stream Chich­ester Na­tional Park.

The woman and her hus­band were driv­ing on Roe­bourne Wit­tenoom Road near the Python Pool turn-off in the af­ter­noon of Fri­day, April 15, when they turned a cor­ner and hit an out­wash plain and bumpy ter­rain.

Their Toy­ota Land­Cruiser rolled sev­eral times be­fore com­ing to a stop. Roe­bourne po­lice were called to the crash and an am­bu­lance took the fe­male pas­sen­ger, who suf­fered a head lac­er­a­tion, to Nickol Bay Hos­pi­tal in Kar­ratha. She has since been dis­charged from hos­pi­tal.

Po­lice have de­ter­mined the in­ci­dent was caused by rough ter­rain.
