Elderly Man Perishes in Grisly Multi-Vehicle Accident on Golden Highway


Tragedy struck the heart of New South Wales’ central west as a distressing multi-vehicle accident claimed the life of a 67-year-old man. The incident, that caused a wave of horror to course through the community, happened on the stretch of the Golden Highway near Cassilis, around 11.30 am on September 18. Witnesses reported a collision that involved an Isuzu D-MAX utility, a Ford Ranger utility, and a Mazda CX-5, sending shockwaves through the morning stillness.

Paramedics rushed to the scene where they discovered the elderly gentleman trapped in the wreckage of the Ford Ranger. Despite their best efforts, administering critical care on site, the man’s injuries were just too severe. He was immediately transported to the John Hunter Hospital in Newcastle, his condition grave. Unfortunately, on Sunday, nearly two weeks after the calamitous crash, the man succumbed to his injuries.

A 29-year-old man, spotted at the controls of the Isuzu, was also rushed to John Hunter Hospital. Fortunately, he was in stable condition following the emergency team’s timely interventions. The sole unhurt individual of this unfortunate event, a 63-year-old woman commanding the Mazda CX-5, was taken to Merriwa Hospital for necessary testing, her state being shockingly unscathed.

As the dust settled and the wreckage was combed through, a crime scene was outlined and embarked upon a meticulous forensic examination. With the investigations still active, authorities have been quick to appeal to the public’s sense of community and justice. They urge anyone who might be a witness or have any relevant information, to step forward and aid the investigators through the Crime Stoppers line.
