Fatal Crash at Beaufort


Major Crash investigators are investigating a fatal crash that claimed the lives of two men at Beaufort in the State's mid-north last night.

Just after 7pm on Saturday 3 November, emergency service crews attended the Augusta Highway near Branch Hill Road at Beaufort, about 20 km north of Port Wakefield, after a car left the road and hit a tree.

Sadly, the driver, a 58-year-old Port Augusta man, and his passenger, a 45-year-old Port Augusta man, both died at the scene.


Major Crash investigators attended and examined the crash site.

Traffic was diverted around the scene for several hours, but restrictions have been lifted.

The State's road toll is currently 63 - it was 80 at the same time last year.
