SA police to investigate fatal crash at Victorian border


Police have launched an investigation after a horror three-truck collision that killed one person took place hours after a state shut its border to Victoria.

Even though Victorian Police are looking into the death, SA Police Commissioner Grant Stevens said he instigated an inquiry into how the state’s border checkpoints were managed.

He said a traffic management expert was deployed with a senior police officer to make sure the current set up was appropriate.

Mr Stevens said it was not fair to speculate if a lack of resources at the Bordertown checkpoint led to the fatality.

“I think we should conduct our inquiries and provide factual information based on the information that we’re able to obtain and be clear in our assessment as to what the circumstances were,” he said.

“Any loss of life on our roads is a tragedy and impacts on so many people.

“This truck driver’s family is now grieving and the people he works with, his friends, his colleagues are all experiencing significant loss.”
