Update: Fatal crash at Marion

12 Apr 2019 3:58pm

A man has died following a fatal crash at Marion today.

Just before 12.30pm Friday 12 April police and emergency services were called to Marion Road near the intersection of Finniss Street after a car crashed into a power pole.

The driver and sole occupant, an 83-year-old Torrensville man, died at the scene.

Major Crash Investigators attended the scene and are investigating whether a medical episode contributed to the crash.

Traffic is down to one lane in both directions on Marion Road and police are asking motorists to avoid the area if possible.

The man’s death takes the State’s Road Toll to 34, compared to 20 at the same time last year.
