Road fatality at Erina

Police are investigating a fatal crash that occurred in Erina, just after 5:20am on Tuesday, January 12.

Emergency services were called to the Central Coast Highway between Bonnal and Karalta Roads, following reports of a collision. Initial inquiries have led police to believe two vehicles collided while travelling in the west-bound lanes. The two vehicles were a white Holden Rodeo and a white Nissan Pulsar. A male driver of one of the vehicles stopped and exited the car, when a third vehicle, believed to be a white Ford Fiesta, approached the scene and hit the man.

Ambulance paramedics were called and attempted to assist the injured man; however he died at the scene. No one else was injured during the incident. Officers attached to Brisbane Water Local Area Command and the metropolitan crash investigation unit were called and established a crime scene, which was to be forensically examined. The road was closed for the morning following the crash. Police have appealed for witnesses to the fatal collision or events leading up to the crash, who they have not yet spoken to, to contact Gosford Police. A report will be prepared for the Coroner.
