Police call for information from public after two men die in crash south of Adelaide



Police are calling for information from the public about a head-on crash that killed two men south of Adelaide.

The men died on Victor Harbor Road at Mount Jagged after their white Toyota Townace van crashed head-on into a ute about 4:00pm yesterday.

The driver, a 28-year-old Novar Gardens man, and the passenger, a 31-year-old Salisbury Downs man, died at the scene.

The driver of the ute — a 49-year-old Hallett Cove woman — was flown to the Flinders Medical Centre with non-life threatening injuries.

She is now in a stable condition.

The road has reopened.

SA Police is calling for witnesses or anyone with information to come forward, particularly if they saw the van travelling south on Victor Harbor Road before the crash.

Forty-one people have now died on South Australian roads this year, equal to the same time last year, despite less traffic because of coronavirus restrictions.

The state recorded its worst road toll for almost a decade in 2019, when 114 people died.

A man who died while leaving his driveway in the town of Balaklava this morning will not be counted towards the road toll because police say he died of a medical episode.

Last week, a high-speed crash at Urrbrae killed senior police officer Joanne Shanahan, as well as mother Tania McNeill.
