ACT Policing has reported that the death of a 43-year-old man in Taylor yesterday (8 December) will be counted as the 10th death on ACT Roads in 2021.

The investigation has confirmed the incident occurred on a public road in a construction area, not on a worksite, and will therefore be included in the road toll.

Police were alerted to the incident at around 11:25 am and attended the home site on Crone Terrace, Taylor.

The joint ACT Policing/WorkSafe ACT investigation into this incident is continuing.
