Five killed in black weekend

An 84-year-old man injured in road crash on Sunday has died from his injuries, bringing the weekend road toll to five.

The man was a passenger in a Toyota Hiace campervan which left Yagnet Road at Kojarena, east of Geraldton, and rolled several times.

He was initially treated at Geraldton Regional Hospital before being transferred to Royal Perth Hospital, where he died this morning.

His 74-year-old partner who was driving the campervan was also taken to hospital.

Police want to speak to anyone who witnessed the crash or saw the vehicle before it rolled. Calls should be made to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

The death adds to a black weekend on WA roads which claimed the lives of five people in separate crashes.

On Saturday afternoon, a 23-year-old man was killed when his Kawasaki motorcycle collided with a four-wheel drive in Chittering.

The motorcyclist was travelling north-west along Julimar Road at 3.25pm when he crashed into a Mitsubishi Pajero.

The 49-year-old female Pajero driver and her two children were treated for minor injuries at Northam Hospital.

Also on Saturday, a 24-year-old Albany woman died after rolling her car in Jerramungup.

Separate crashes yesterday claimed the lives of a 21-year-old Safety Bay woman in a head-on collision on Toodyay Road and a 72-year-old truck driver from Narembeen, who was killed when his truck rolled near Dwellingup.
