Man dies at intersection in Byford

The accident occurred on the corner of Hopkinson and Abernathy Roads.

A man has died following a horrific crash in Byford yesterday.

The crash happened just after midday when a Mitsubishi truck travelling west on Abernethy Road collided with a Mitsubishi Starwagon at the intersection of Hopkinson Road.

The 40-year-old male passenger in the Starwagon died as a result of his injuries.

It was the second fatal crash at the intersection in less than a year.

In October last year a 20-year-old man died following a crash at the intersection while two other men travelling in the same Holden Commodore sedan received serious injuries.

The driver of the other vehicle, a 62-year-old man, was also injured.

A woman was injured at the intersection in March this year after her car collided with a truck.

Anyone who saw this week’s crash or the vehicle prior to the crash should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or make a report online at
