Three people dead in separate road crashes on WA roads

WA’S road death toll has risen by three following a horror crash in Perth’s south east.

A 47-year-old woman died in a head-on collision in Flint that also left two others in serious condition at Royal Perth Hospital.

Around 6.15pm Friday night a blue Volvo hatchback was driving east along Brookton Highway when it collided with a white Holden Commodore near the intersection of Edison Mill Road.

The female driver of the Volvo died at the scene while the 18-year-old male driver of the Holden and his male passenger were taken to Royal Perth Hospital where they remain in serious but stable condition this morning.

That crash followed a double fatality in the state’s north earlier in the afternoon, when a road train collided with a car towing a caravan on Great Northern Highway roughly 150km south of Port Hedland.

A 46-year-old man and 45-year-old woman were killed in the crash, which occurred around 3pm. Two teenagers who were also in the car were taken to hospital as a precaution. They did not suffer serious injuries.

Major Crash Investigators from Perth are at the scene and Great Northern Highway remains closed in both directions.

Meanwhile, just before midnight on Friday police were called to a third crash, this time on Scarp Road in Myara (near North Dandalup) after a black Nissan Patrol veered off the road and rolled, coming to rest on its roof.

It is believed the 23-year-old male driver was thrown from the vehicle during the roll but became pinned underneath it.

One of his two passengers, who both escaped without injury, freed the driver from the wreckage and he was taken to RPH by the RAC Rescue Helicopter.

He remains there this morning in critical condition.

Anyone with information regarding any of the crashes is asked to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
