Probe into fatal crash
COFFS/Clarence police have released the identity of the man who died in a single-vehicle crash near Woombah on Wednesday afternoon.
Roger Clarke, from Berowra, was killed when his Volkswagen Amarok left the roadway and hit a tree just before 3.30pm on Iluka Road at Woombah.
The 66-year-old, who was the driver and sole occupant, died at the scene.
Local Area Command duty officer Inspector Jo Reid said Mr Clarke was travelling to his holiday home at Iluka, with his wife following half an hour behind him.
Insp Reid said investigations were continuing into the cause of the collision.
“At this stage there were no brake marks on the road, so we’re looking at fatigue or a medical episode as the cause of this tragedy,” Insp Reid said.
“Police will continue to make inquiries into the incident and determine what exactly caused the collision.”
Insp Reid said a report will be prepared for the Coroner.
