Police charge man after fatal collision in Dederang

Major Collision Investigation Unit detectives have charged a man following a fatal head-on collision in Dederang on Sunday.

The charge follows a head-on collision on the Kiewa Valley Highway just after 11.30am on 16 January.

Sadly, the collision claimed the life of a 70-year-old Albury woman, with the driver of the vehicle in which she was a passenger, a 72-year-old Albury man, since released from hospital after sustaining minor injuries.

Another passenger in that vehicle, a 68-year-old from Springdale Heights in New South Wales, was airlifted to hospital with serious injuries, where she remains.

The driver of the other vehicle, a 35-year-old Dederang man, and his two-year old male passenger were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

They have been since been released.

MCIU detectives interviewed the Dederang man yesterday and he has since been charged with one count of dangerous driving causing death.

He has been bailed to appear at the Wodonga Magistrates’ Court on 20 January.
