Naracoorte accident to be investigated

Naracoorte police are investigating a crash after a car hit a tree and stobie pole early Sunday morning.

Just after 1.30am on Sunday August 12, police and emergency service crews attended a crash on Gordon Street Naracoorte after a white Ford station wagon mounted the kerb and hit a tree and stobie pole.

The driver, a 22-year-old man from Naracoorte, and a passenger, a 21-year-old man from Adelaide, were both taken to the Naracoorte Hospital for observation only and escaped any serious injuries.

The car was towed from the scene and SA Power Networks were called in to check on the damaged pole.

Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the crash and will follow up further once results are known from blood taken from both the driver and passenger.
