Update #2 – Crash – Central Australia

Northern Territory Police have concluded the investigation into a fatal bus crash that occurred near Hermannsburg in 2022.

The crash resulted in the death of one passenger, and left numerous interstate and international tourists with significant and life-changing injuries.

In consultation with the Director of Public Prosecutions earlier this month, Northern Territory Police referred the matter to NT WorkSafe.

Detective Senior Sergeant Brendan Lindner said, “An extensive brief of evidence compiled by Major Crash detectives in Alice Springs was reviewed by Director of Public Prosecutions.

“Detectives completed their investigation early last year which was undertaken in collaboration with WorkSafe investigators. The brief of evidence has been provided to WorkSafe for further action.

“The referral of evidence to WorkSafe underscores the commitment to ensuring accountability and safety in the aftermath of this incident.”
