Sadly, a 27-year-old man has died following a crash which occurred at Kudla on Tuesday morning.

Just after 4.30am, July 23, patrols and emergency services were called to Coventry Road, near the intersection with Athol Road at Kudla after a vehicle had left the road and collided with a stobie pole.

The driver and sole occupant of the Ford sedan, a Evanston Gardens man passed away in hospital.

Major Crash investigators attended the scene to examine the circumstances of the accident.

Coventry Road still remains closed between Dalkeith Road and Salem Road.

This is the 66th fatality on our roads this year as compared to 42 for the same time last year.
