Police are calling for witnesses to a fatal crash that claimed the life of a young man in Northam this month.

The car was earlier involved in a police chase before it crashed into a pole on Stirling Street about 7:45pm on November 2.

A 20-year-old passenger died as a result of the crash.

A 30-year-old man was yesterday charged with dangerous driving occasioning death in circumstances of aggravation, and no authority to drive.

He was due to appear in the Perth Magistrate's Court today.
