The ACT has recorded its first fatal collision for 2011, only eight days into the new year.
ACT Policing’s Collision, Investigation and Reconstruction Team (CIRT) are investigating the fatal collision that occurred last night (Saturday January 8).
Around 8.10pm, police were called to the Mugga Lane in Symonston. Early investigations indicate the vehicle was travelling northbound on Mugga Lane when the driver lost control causing the vehicle to roll several times.
The driver of the vehicle, a 41-year-old male from Kambah, died at the scene. Police believe speed may have been a contributing factor into the cause of the crash.
Mugga lane was closed in both directions for several hours while the investigation of the scene took place.
Police would urge any witnesses who are yet to speak to police to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au.
