Man injured in Yallingup crash
A man has serious injuries and his two dogs have died following a horror crash in the South West.
The man, aged in his 40s, was driving a Holden Commodore carrying the animals north on Caves Road in Yallingup when he hit several trees about 1am on Sunday.
The crash, south of Whittle Road, caused the car to split into several pieces, propelling some parts up to 50m over the road and nearby bushland.
The man suffered serious head injuries and was taken to Royal Perth Hospital.
The dogs, which are believed to be his pets, were found dead at the scene.
The incident comes as Main Roads WA eyes widening and sealing sections of Caves Road, but a spokeswoman told the Times the area where the crash occurred was not within the project’s scope.
Two community reference groups have recently been formed to look at certain sections of Caves Road, with further meetings planned this month.
WA Police did not respond to questions about the cause of the crash.
Police have urged anyone who saw the Yallingup crash to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or make an online report at crimestopperswa. com.au.
