Approximately 3:15am on Saturday the 14th October 2023, a grey Toyota Hilux, was travelling south on Back River Road, Magra when the driver, a 33 year old male, and sole occupant, failed to negotiate the slight right-hand bend in the road.
As a result, the vehicle left the roadway and collided with a power pole and the driver was trapped within the vehicle.
Nearby residents heard the crash and rendered assistance to the driver until emergency services arrived. The driver was removed from the vehicle and sadly, died at the scene.
Initial investigations believe inattention and possibly fatigue are contributing factors in the crash. A report will be prepared for the coroner.
