Fatal Crash in Bambun – A 38-Year-Old Man Died In the Accident

A man has died in a horror crash involving two road trains and a sedan on Brand Highway about 5.35am on 10th February. Emergency services arrived at the scene in Bambun which is about 68km north of Perth. This accident happened after two road trains – a Volvo and a Kenworth that were heading north collided with a red Holden Commodore Sedan that was heading south.

The driver of the Commodore, who was just 38-year-old, recevied serious injuries and died at the scene. The 25-year-old Kenworth’s driver was taken to St John of God Hospital in Midland with severe injuries in critical condition. Fortunately, the 40-year-old driver of the Volvo truck did not get hurt. Major crash detectives rushed to the scene and were investigating the incident.

Inspector Vic Hussey said that the incident was completely distressing for everyone involved, including the family members and the relatives of the victimsS. He also added that the consequences of an accident involving two heavy vehicles are tragic and one person has lost his life as a result of that. The scene was extremely horrific that even the emergency responders who attended the scene feel traumatic.

One of the road trains rolled on its side and completely blocked the highway, creating traffic chaos. Motorists were insisted to take alternative routes as parts of highway between Gingin and Muchea were closed. Clean-up crews were working to remove the wreckage and the spilled grain, sand and cement, so the road was shut for a few hours.

Police appealed for anyone with information, dash-cam or mobile phone vision about this crash to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or make a report online.
