Narrogin man killed in rollover

Albany Advertiser

A 46-year-old Narrogin man died after he lost control of his ute and rolled down an embankment on Saturday morning in Nyabing.

Major Crash detectives were investigating the fatality, which brings WA’s 2017 road toll so far to 123 deaths — including 69 on country roads.

Police said the man was driving a Ford Falcon ute west on the Nyabing-Pingrup Road, which becomes Richmond Street in the Nyabing town site.

As he entered the 50km/h zone for the town, the driver failed to negotiate a left hand bend, veered off the road and rolled down an embankment.

A passer-by discovered the vehicle about 12.35am and called emergency services. CPR was performed until St John Ambulance paramedics arrived, but the man — a Nyabing local — died at the scene.

Investigators want to speak to anyone who witnessed the crash or saw the vehicle beforehand. Anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report online at www.crimestopperswa.com.au.

This time last year, 155 people had been killed on WA roads.
