Two smashes within one hour


NT PO­LICE were forced to di­vert traf­fic yes­ter­day fol­low­ing two sep­a­rate crashes within an hour on Goy­der Rd.

About 2pm, a two-car col­li­sion (pic­tured) on the cor­ner of Goy­der Rd and the Stu­art High­way closed both the high­way’s in­bound lanes and one of its out­bound lanes.

A woman was taken to Royal Dar­win Hos­pi­tal as a pre­cau­tion fol­low­ing the in­ci­dent, but it is un­der­stood she man­aged to exit her car unas­sisted, only sus­tain­ing mi­nor in­juries.

About 3pm, just af­ter po­lice cleared the first scene, a crash on the in­ter­sec­tion of Gil­ruth Ave, East Point Rd and Goy­der Rd in Fan­nie Bay knocked out traf­fic lights. NT Po­lice urged com­muters to take al­ter­na­tive roads home as the Fan­nie Bay in­ter­sec­tion re­mained with­out power.
