Com­mu­nity mem­ber dies in rollover at One Arm Point

Broome Advertiser - - News -

Po­lice say a man killed at One Arm Point early Satur­day was a mem­ber of the com­mu­nity.

The crash hap­pened on the ac­cess road to One Arm Point indige­nous com­mu­nity, known for its views of the Buc­ca­neer Archipelago.

The in­ci­dent was re­ported to author­i­ties about 9am on Satur­day but po­lice be­lieve the black Nis­san Navara hit trees be­fore rolling at least four hours ear­lier.

“The driver, a 46 year-old man from the One Arm Point Com­mu­nity, died at the scene from in­juries sus­tained in the crash,” a po­lice spokesman said.

“He was the sole oc­cu­pant from the ve­hi­cle.”

Po­lice said there were no wit­nesses to the crash so it was un­clear what hap­pened but of­fi­cers are in­ves­ti­gat­ing.

The road was closed in both di­rec­tions.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should con­tact Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 000 or make a re­port on­line.
