Fatal Bass Highway crash
Police and emergency services responded to a two-vehicle crash on the Bass Highway near Elizabeth Town about 7:40pm yesterday.
Sadly a 28-year-old woman from Blackstone Heights died at the scene.
Initial investigations indicate that the woman, who was travelling east in an orange 2010 Ford Festiva, crossed to the wrong side of the road and collided with a white LDV utility travelling in the opposite direction.

Both vehicles were significantly damaged in the crash. Police would like to hear from anyone who saw either vehicle travelling on the Bass Highway before the crash, or who may have dash cam footage.
