Investigators have laid additional charges against the ACT driver of a car involved in a fatal crash in the Southern Highlands last year.

Officers from the Crash Investigation Unit (CIU) have been investigating the two-vehicle crash that occurred on Binda Road at Binda, 22 km north of Crookwell, at 11:15 am on 7 December 2019.

A Toyota Landcruiser towing a trailer was driving north when the collision occurred with a Hyundai Accent, being driven in the same direction.

A passenger in the Toyota, a 62-year-old woman from Flinders, died when the 4WD rolled. The driver, a 63-year-old man, suffered multiple injuries and was taken to Canberra Hospital in a serious condition.

The Hyundai driver, a 29-year-old woman, was taken to hospital for mandatory tests.

Following inquiries, investigators charged the woman in May 2020. She remains before the courts.

Following further investigations, police have laid a further three charges: driving in a manner dangerous, dangerous driving occasioning grievous bodily harm and causing bodily harm by misconduct in charge of a motor vehicle.

She is due to appear before Goulburn Local Court today (19 August).
