Posted on October 20, 2016 by Amy Taeuber
A 23-year-old man has been arrested following a fatal crash which claimed the life of an elderly woman at Elizabeth south over-night.
Just before 10pm police pursued a red Holden sedan along Commercial Road at Salisbury. Police say they quickly terminated the chase for concerns over safety.
Minutes later the car collided with a vehicle driven by a 74-year-old at the intersection of Phillip Highway and Blake Road. The woman was rushed to the Royal Adelaide Hospital but sadly died of her injuries.
The young driver was charged with dangerous driving causing death and will face court today.
Sadly it brings the state’s road toll to 72 compared to 86 this time last year.
