Single vehicle fatality

A 41-YEAR-old Maffra woman died in a single car collision at 4.40pm Friday when her car left the Traralgon-Maffra Rd and collided with a tree.

The sole occupant of the car, the woman died at the scene.

Police said she was travelling from Tinamba to Maffra on the wet road when the accident occurred.

Police mechanics are looking over the car to determine if the accident was caused by a mechanical fault or if it was a result of poor road-weather conditions and driver error.

A report is being prepared for the coroner.

Any witnesses to the incident are urged to phone Wellington Highway Patrol’s Leading Senior Constable Cooke on 5143 5000 to help police in their investigation.
