Man in­jured in Yallingup crash

Augusta Margaret River Times - - News -

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.
