A 65-year-old man has died at The Canberra Hospital following a collision in Hume earlier this month.
ACT Policing’s Collision, Investigation and Reconstruction Team are investigating the collision which occurred on Thursday, April 14, where a semi-trailer veered across both lanes of the Monaro Highway, and collided with a number of power poles and vehicles before coming to a stop.
The man passed away at The Canberra Hospital on Friday (April 22).
The post-mortem indicated the man suffered a medical condition prior to the collision, which is believed to have caused his death. As such, his death will not be counted towards the ACT’s road toll.
The road toll for the ACT remains at six for 2011.
