Vehicle Crash – Wadeye

Police attended a single vehicle roll over on a dirt track just outside the community of Wadeye around 10:00am on Saturday, 21 April.

The force of the crash resulted in the roof of the vehicle being crushed against tree. The 32-year-old driver and a 35-year-old passenger were transported to RDH for treatment and a 44-year-old passenger was taken to the local clinic with minor injuries, Northern Territory Police say

Investigations into the cause of the crash are continuing but preliminary information suggests that alcohol may have been a contributing factor.
