Road death a mystery

By CRAIG McTEAR

POLICE remain baffled about the cause of an accident that killed a Woolgoolga woman on Saturday.

So much so, they are calling for anyone who saw the crash to come forward.

Chief Inspector Tony Ferguson said the 32-year-old was driving her Holden Commodore station wagon east on Woolgoolga Creek Road at Woolgoolga at 1pm.

He said the woman lost control of the car near the Ryan Street intersection, ran off the road and slammed into a power pole on the driver's side.

The woman, who was the sole occupant, died at the scene. Mr Ferguson said it was not known at what speed the woman was travelling, but it appeared she had braked heavily when she lost control of the vehicle.

"Local residents heard the impact and rushed to her aid," he said.

"However, there were no witnesses to the accident."

If you can help with the investigation, phone Woolgoolga Police Station on 6654 1244.
