Police investigating fatal collision in Duffy

ACT Policing is investigating a collision on Hindmarsh Drive in Duffy today (Friday, March 14) in which an elderly male driver has died.

About 11.30am police responded to a report of a collision at the intersection of Hindmarsh Drive and Dixon Drive, Duffy.

Investigators are examining the circumstances surrounding the collision, which occurred after the motor vehicle driven by the man collided with a tree.

Attempts were made to resuscitate the elderly man but he later died. He was the sole occupant of the car.

While police are noting this as the third fatality on Canberra’s roads this year, a determination is yet to be made as to whether this was a road fatality or the result of an unrelated medical condition.

ACT Policing’s Collision Investigation and Reconstruction Team is requesting that any witnesses to the incident who have not yet spoken with police should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on act.crimestoppers.com.au.
