Serious two vehicle crash Don Road, Devonport

At 1.56pm Monday 23/1/2012 a two vehicle head on collision occurred on Don Road, a short distance uphill from the Gateway Church.

At this stage it appears that for unknown reasons a blue Toyota hatch which had been travelling uphill has crossed into the oncoming lane and collided with a red Ford sedan travelling in the opposite direction.

As a result of the collision, the 66 year old female driver and sole occupant of the Toyota was conveyed to the North West Regional Hospital in a critical condition. The driver of the Ford, a 58 year old man and a 23 year old male passenger both from Ulverstone were also transported to hospital with minor injuries.

Don Road was closed to all traffic which was diverted around the scene. Police from Forensic Services, Crash Investigation and Devonport Uniform attended the scene along with local fire rescue units.

Police would like to speak to anyone who may have observed either vehicle prior to the collision or the collision itself to contact the Crash Investigation Section at the Burnie Police Station or call 131 444.
