A Seabird man died on Gingin Brook Rd in Neergabby (West Gingin) on September 13 after he lost control on a bend after Ferguson Rd.

MAJOR crash investigators are seeking information about a fatal crash in Neergabby and a hit-and-run in Granville during the past week.

WA Police also seek information about a crash at the intersection of Yanchep Beach Rd and Wanneroo Rd.

A police spokeswoman said the fatal crash on Gingin Brook Rd in Neergabby (West Gingin) happened about 10.30pm on Tuesday, September 13.

The spokeswoman said a 25-year-old Seabird man was driving a green 1995 model Holden Commodore utility west on Gingin Brook Rd when he lost control of the vehicle on a left hand bend just after Ferguson Rd.

“The utility crossed onto the incorrect side of the road before travelling down a slight embankment and colliding with a power pole,’’ she said.

“A passenger in the vehicle, a 23-year-old man of Seabird received serious injuries and was airlifted to Royal Perth Hospital.

“Major crash investigators would like to speak to anyone who may have seen the crash, or the Holden Commodore utility prior to the crash.’’

The police spokeswoman said major crash investigators were also seeking information about a hit-and-run accident in Granville on Sunday, September 11.

“Between 3am and 7am a 21-year-old male received serious injuries to his legs when he was believed to be struck by a vehicle while walking along Gingin Brook Rd, Granville,’’ she said.

“The 21-year-old was found lying on the roadside embankment by a passing motorist.

“The male was airlifted to Royal Perth Hospital suffering hypothermia and serious injuries to his legs.’’

A police spokesman said three people were injured in a crash about 6.35pm at the intersection of Yanchep Beach and Wanneroo roads on Tuesday, September 13.
