1623
Two people have died after their car went through the Mooliabeenee Rd intersection and hit an embankment.

WA Police are still trying to locate the family of two people who died after a horror crash in Gingin on Saturday, April 29.

But about 3pm on Sunday a police spokeswoman said they believed the occupants of the car were a man in his 30s and a woman in her 20s.

“Inquiries relating to the crash are ongoing and at this time we are unable to confirm which occupant of the vehicle was the driver,’’ she said.

The spokeswoman said even once next of kin were notified positive identification would still take some days.

She said the crash happened about 8.15pm when a car travelling along Old Mooliabeenee Rd went through the intersection of Mooliabeene Rd and hit the embankment.

The force of the crash caused significant damage to the vehicle which caught fire.

About 10.45pm on Saturday night police closed Weld St at the intersection of Edwards St, Old Mooliabeenee Rd at the intersection of Mooliabeenee Rd and Cockram Rd at the intersection of Honeycomb Rd.

Gingin Police, who are investigating the accident, tweeted before 6am Old Mooliabeenee Rd and Mooliabeene Rd had been reopened.
