On Saturday, two people died when a truck and a car collided on the Lincoln Highway about 10 kilometres north of Cowell.

Police arrested and charged the truck driver with aggravated driving without due care and later released the 51-year-old Whyalla man on police bail.

Major Crash Investigators examined the scene and will allege the truck driver drove onto the wrong side of the road, colliding head-on with the car.

Police are also investigating the possibility of driver fatigue as being a significant factor in the crash.

The truck driver has cooperated with police and assisted with the investigation.

He is expected to appear in Whyalla Magistrates Court on March 30.

On Sunday night, a man died in a crash at Marla in the state’s far north.

Just after 8pm, police and emergency services were called to the Stuart Highway, about 30 kilometres south of Marla, after reports that a semi-trailer had crashed and rolled off the road.

The driver of the truck, a 32-year-old Victorian man died at the scene.

His death takes the state’s road toll to 12, compared with four at this time last year.
