TRUCK ROLLOVER CLOSES LANE

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - FRONT PAGE -

PO­LICE are in­ves­ti­gat­ing a truck rollover on Wed­nes­day, where a driver and pas­sen­ger es­caped with mi­nor in­juries.

The truck was trav­el­ling north on For­rest High­way when the crash oc­curred at about 9.45am near the turn-off be­tween Trea­sure and Welles­ley roads, south of Bin­ningup.

The truck came to rest on its roof in the me­dian strip be­tween the north and south­bound lanes.

The 20-year-old driver from Vic­to­ria Park and the adult male pas­sen­ger both re­ceived mi­nor in­juries, with the truck the only ve­hi­cle in­volved.

South West traf­fic po­lice at­tended the in­ci­dent as well as am­bu­lance and Har­vey Vol­un­teer Fire and Res­cue Brigade per­son­nel.

While the right north-bound lane and the turn off were closed, traf­fic was still flow­ing in both di­rec­tions of the high­way within 30 min­utes of the in­ci­dent.

Po­lice are still in­ves­ti­gat­ing the cir­cum­stances of the crash.

South West traf­fic po­lice, vol­un­teer fire and res­cue ser­vice per­son­nel and am­bu­lance of­fi­cers at­tend the scene of a truck crash on For­rest High­way on Wed­nes­day.
