About 4.50pm on Sunday, January 25, a blue Holden Commodore travelling north along Great Southern Highway appears to have failed to negotiate a left hand bend, hitting the gravel verge.
In an attempt to correct the Commodore back onto the sealed road, the female driver appears to have lost control, which resulted in the vehicle entering into the path of a Mazda panel van travelling in the opposite direction.
As a result of the collision, the Mazda left the carriageway, down an embankment and rolled onto the driver’s side.
The only occupant of the Mazda, a 69-year-old Woodanilling man, died at the scene.
The Holden Commodore became engulfed in fire in the middle of the carriageway.
Fortunately the driver, a 17-year-old girl from Katanning, managed to exit the vehicle.
She was taken to Wagin Hospital for treatment.
Police would like to speak to anyone who was travelling in the area at the time who saw the crash or the either of the vehicles prior to the crash.
Anyone with information are asked to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
