A 62-year-old Encounter Bay man has tragically lost his life in a serious two-car collision near Strathalbyn today, Monday, January 8.
The man was driving on Alexandrina Road at Sanderstone when his vehicle was involved in an accident with another car around 2pm.
His passenger, a 61-year-old woman, was airlifted to the Flinders Medical Centre in a critical condition but the man, sadly, died at the scene.
The driver and passenger of the other vehicle have been taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
Alexandrina Road remains closed between Wattle Flat Road and Michelmore Road while Major Crash Investigators examine the circumstances surrounding the crash.
Motorists have been advised to take alternative routes.
The man’s death takes the state’s road toll to two, compared with zero at the same time last year.
